Roughly a dozen people were involved in a brawl at the United Center following the McDonald's All-American game on Wednesday. Video, which was posted by the Sun-Times, shows several people fighting in the concourse after the annual all-star basketball game.
McDonald's said in a statement:
"Naturally, we are disappointed by this kind of activity, which runs counter to the spirit of the McDonald’s All American Games. But we are equally grateful to the United Center Security team and the Chicago Police for restoring order. We refer all further questions to the Chicago Police."
Chicago police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi told the Tribune that officers stationed at the arena may have taken care of the incident. "It was most likely addressed by patrol officers at the venue if we didn't get a 911 call on it," he said.
The annual all-star game hosts the top high-school graduate players in the country. The match has been held at the United Center each year since 2011.
No one was arrested or injured, according to reports.
