These Champagne Bottles Were No Match for This Police Officer

WRIGLEYVILLE — There were lots of empty champagne bottles left over in Wrigleyville as the Blackhawks party wound down early Tuesday morning.

This Chicago police officer made sure these bottles weren't intact to throw, especially after multiple police calls on the scanner regarding bottles being thrown at officers.

In light of the chaos that followed the last Blackhawks Stanley Cup win, bar owners across Wrigleyville took extra precautions this year, serving drinks only in plastic cups, since glass bottles can be used as a weapon.

General Manager JJ Campise of the The Stretch Bar and Grill, 3485 N. Clark St., said they'd be following Chicago Police's contingency plan laid out Monday during a meeting with business owners in Wrigleyville.

"We are going to have more staff, and more in-house security to make sure everything is safe," Campise said. "Like other bars, we've been asked to serve drinks in plastic cups to make sure they can't be used as projectiles."
