Video Shows Fight Break Out Outside Six Flags Great America

Two young girls were taken into custody, police said

Video shows a fight that left two juvenile girls in police custody at Six Flags Great America over the weekend. 

Gurnee police said they responded to a massive disturbance at the Chicago-area amusement park Friday after two girls got into a fight. 

According to police, in-park officers took the girls into custody after they began fighting, but several other "juvenile age disturbances" soon followed. 

Video from the scene showed two girls fighting in what appeared to be a parking lot before others in a large group became involved. Police arrive and attempt to break up the fight, footage showed, but the violence continued briefly.  

No one was injured and no weapons were used or recovered at the scene, authorities said.

"Safety is our highest priority and we have zero tolerance for any inappropriate behavior," Six Flags said in a statement. "Gurnee Police were already on property and responded immediately. We are working closely with local law enforcement to investigate."

Gurnee Police said an investigation remained ongoing. 

Anyone with information on the incident, or with a video of the fight, can contact police at 847-599-7000.
