Ald. Michele Smith (43) tweeted a link to a statement on “the event” at North Avenue Beach on Wednesday and wrote “Yesterday, about 400 people gathered at an unpermitted large-scale event at North Avenue Beach...An estimated 400 people came to the beach, and while almost all the liquor was removed the group still engaged in many illegal activities including climbing the lifeguard towers, and climbing on CTA buses. This resulted in situations where injuries were probable and the police acted to ensure the well-being of all involved was protected. In order to prevent injuries, the police initiated a process to direct people to leave the beach. As the group dispersed, residents observed gatherings at local gas stations and other businesses. In all cases, no one was hurt, and very few arrests were necessary. The area was cleared between 11 p.m. and midnight.”
