What Not To Do Around The Bucket Boys

The “Bucket Boys” are small groups of young African-American men who sit outside Wrigley Field after Cubs games and pound on plastic buckets as if they were drums, hoping people will give them a few bucks as they leave the ballpark.

Frankly, they’re really annoying.

Three young people who were attending Friday’s Cubs game pushed and punched some other men who told the Bucket Boys they had to stop because they didn’t have a license to perform.

↵

Unfortunately for the people from Indiana, the people they attacked were off-duty Chicago police officers:

Andrew Lazo, 24, Joseph Reaves, 28, and his sister Katie Reaves, 30 — all from South Bend — were charged with aggravated battery of a peace officer and spent the weekend in jail.

↵

Lazo got angry, started shouting, shoved one of the cops and punched the other, while Joseph Reaves punched a cop in the back of the head and his sister joined in the melee.

Kids, don’t do this. Just walk on by. And wear earplugs if you need to.
