(The AEGIS Alliance) – CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – A house packed with party-goers on the West Side of Chicago was being live-streamed on Facebook in a home that belongs to a Chicago Fire Department commander, according to the Chicago Sun-Times and WGN9.
Apparently the commander was busy at work and was unaware that her son was having a party. The party allegedly had more than 50 young adults in attendance.
Her son gave an apology saying he didn’t understand how important social distancing is during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Monday, officers with the Chicago Police Department said they responded to a party that was happening in the neighborhood of Galewood in North Narragansett’s 2000 block not long after midnight on Sunday.
“The responding officers dispersed approximately 50 individuals from the residence, and closed the event without further incident, citations or arrests,” a police spokesperson said.
The party attracted the attention of Mayor Lori Lightfoot and the video of the party was reviewed. The CPD said the homeowner of where the party happened was cited on Monday for disorderly conduct.
Mayor Lightfoot gave a statement on Monday and said, “Every single person there that put themselves at risk, puts the next person, and the next person they come into contact with at risk. That’s why, for me, that scene is so distressing.”
