It's been an interesting time to be out and about Chicago's streets in recent weeks. This incident caught on video occurred Thurdsay at LaSalle and Monroe.

A family stopped their SUV in the middle of the intersection and proceeded to bound atop their vehicle and start dancing (almost all of them without coats) to stunned looks from pedestrians and growing impatience from other motorists.

Although you can clearly see in the third video police eventually arrived and arrested the adults, Chicago Police News Affairs was unaware of the incident as of 5 p.m. Thursday according to RedEye. Hopefully they are now.
