CHICAGO — Ten juveniles and two adults have been charged in a "minor disturbance" near the Magnificent Mile Saturday night, police said.
All of the charges are cited as misdemeanor offenses ranging from reckless conduct, loitering and damaging a patrol officer's bike.
"Michigan Avenue continues to be safe and is clear. Even minor disturbances are addressed quickly and thoroughly by Chicago police," said News Affairs Officer Joshua Purkiss.
Purkiss said there's "no indication" that the disturbances were arranged online beforehand, as in past so-called "wilding" disturbances.
There were no reported injuries or violence in the incident that took place about 7:45 p.m. Saturday in the area west of Michigan Avenue near Chicago Avenue, according to police.
There was a heavy police presence in the Gold Coast area that has been the scene of other incidents involving large groups of teens. In March, nearly 30 people were arrested for fighting and a robbery on the "L." At least 15 cops patrolled the area around the Chicago Red Line stop; police corralled teens and ordered them to leave the area.
