Chicago police to issue citation for another large party

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say they will issue a citation in connection with a wedding party at a North Side residence last week that spilled into the street in violation of efforts to fight spread of the coronavirus. Video of the April 23 party shows several dozen revelers, all white with some wearing masks, dancing to loud music before officers enforcing Illinois’ stay-at-home orders broke up the crowd. The announcement Wednesday that a citation would be issued comes two days after police ticketed the owner of home where they broke up a large gathering of young blacks over the weekend. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said Wednesday both incidents should be treated “exactly the same.”
