A pair of men are in custody and Chicago police are answering questions after a now-viral video showed a gathering being broken up in the city’s Englewood neighborhood on Sunday night.
The video shows police moving through a large crowd of individuals, and ultimately ended in the arrest of two people on weapons charges.
At approximately 9:45 p.m. Sunday, police responded to a call that a gathering was blocking the street near 70th Street and South Lowe. A scuffle then ensued, as officers darted through the crowd and noticed a man with a gun.
That man, identified by police as Jaquan Hayden of Homewood, was chased by police and eventually placed into custody. Authorities say Hayden was arrested for felony unlawful use of a weapon, possession of a weapon without a FOID card, resisting arrest, and obstruction.
