One hospitalized, five arrested after ‘large’ fight at Navy Pier

A pregnant female was hospitalized and five people were arrested after a fight Friday night at Navy Pier, officials said.

About 7:45 p.m, officers responded to the disturbance involving about 30 people at the popular tourist destination, police said. Five people were later arrested for reckless conduct, police said.

Fire officials said a pregnant female was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t thought to be life-threatening.

No property was damaged and no gunshots were fired, police said.

Kushal Sharma, a Navy Pier worker who sells souvenirs, said he saw about 100 teenagers involved in about eight separate fights.

“It was like Braveheart,” said Sharma, referencing a movie about a medieval war.

Navy Pier is hosting Winter Wonderfest, an annual holiday festival.
