The world is becoming a wild, wild place these days, particularly in big cities like Chicago that seem to be a magnet for crimes of all stripes, a fact that’s fully supported by recent video footage of several individuals at O’Hare International Airport engaged in some serious fisticuffs that’s taken the internet by storm.
The now viral video footage that is getting passed around Twitter reveals a group of at least six men and women throwing hands with each other close to one of the baggage claim areas, according to Fox News.
“A verbal dispute while deplaning escalated in the lower level of terminal 3 when a 24-year-old female victim was punched by two offenders,” the Chicago Police Department went on to say in a statement given to the news network.

During one portion of the video, there are two females sprawled on the floor tugging at each other’s hair. This is an all out, no-holds-barred brawl, ladies and gentlemen.
A few moments later, the two women get up and are separated, only for one of the them to get attacked from by another female who seems to have some sort of object in her hand. That’s immediately bad news, and one of many reasons getting into these kind of fights is not the wisest idea.
Along comes another fellow who rushes the woman attacker and shoves her to the ground.
Someone can be heard yelling in the background as another man throws a punch at the female attackers head. So what started this fray? As of this writing, no one is sure.
Law enforcement officers have since taken Christopher Hampton, 18, of Maywood, Illinois, and Tembra Hicks, 20, of Carol Stream, Illinois, into custody. They are both facing a misdemeanor count of battery.
“Safety and security are always the top priorities of the Chicago Department of Aviation,” the operator of the airport stated during an interview with Fox32 Chicago. “We work closely with all of our federal partners present at O’Hare and Midway International Airports and the Chicago Police Department to ensure that everyone is safe when they are in our facilities.”
The Chicago Department of Aviation was asked for a comment from Fox News Digital, but did not, as of this writing, issue a response.
