Chicago: Armed Citizen Breaks Up Bathroom Brawl

Witnesses say a busy Chicago bar was evacuated after a fight broke out in the men’s room and an armed citizen intervened.

Just after 10 p.m. Sunday night, a 29-year-old patron of the Bottled Blonde bar and pizzeria was in the restroom when he and another man were involved in an altercation. After the second man punched the 29-year-old patron in the face, a good Samaritan—who was also in the men’s room at the time—pulled out his legally carried firearm and ordered the two men to break it up. 

According to police, no shots were fired, and there were no injuries beyond those caused by the initial punch. The investigation is ongoing, but no charges have been filed against the armed citizen.
