A man is in critical condition after he was beaten up during a tailgate party in a McCormick Place parking lot before Sunday’s Chicago Bears game.

The 57-year-old was at a tailgate before the game a few minutes before 11 a.m. in Section 1E of the McCormick Place parking lot when he got into an argument that turned physical, police said.

The man was discovered “incapacitated” near his SUV with blunt trauma to the head and face, according to a police report.

The victim appeared to be “heavily intoxicated” and was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition, according to the report.

No one is in custody in connection as of Tuesday morning.
