But Chicago Police officials said the early-morning mayhem was basically peaceful. Police arrested 23 partiers last night on misdemeanor charges for breaking store windows in Lincoln Park and Lakeview, and other forms of reckless and disorderly conduct, but no felony charges were filed. Officials said they also issued 21 tickets for minor, non-violent infractions, including drinking and urinating in public.
