At least six people were arrested and 33 more were taken to nearby hospitals during the Cubs’ parade and rally Friday.

Six people were arrested for battery, damage to city property, disorderly conduct and operating a drone, according to the Office of Emergency Management and Communications. Thirty-three people were taken to hospitals by the Chicago Fire Department.

Earlier Friday afternoon, Supt. Eddie Johnson thanked police officers and partners over the radio for working hard during the Cubs’ celebration.
