OMGPD, a collection of Patch Chicago's weird and noteworthy crime, posts weekly.
Bad Company: What kind of bar fight do you get into at Chuck E. Cheese? A salad bar fight, of course. Three men at the salad bar began throwing fists at an Oak Lawn Chuck E. Cheese, prompting off-duty police in the restaurant to call for backup. The fight spilled into the parking lot with much cursing, struggling and one woman pleading, "Whatever you all do, watch the babies." The parking lot scene was recorded on video by a Patch editor who was just passing by, minding her own business. (I'd want to punch someone, too, if I had to spend more than five minutes in a Chuck E. Cheese, though.)

'Shroom, 'shroom: An Indiana man went on a magic carpet ride in Lake Forest, partaking of psychedelic mushrooms, cannabis and beer as he drove through town. Someone saw him drinking and called the cops. When police pulled him from behind the wheel of his rolling party, he was unable to walk.

Sesame Street Sob Story: A man caught stealing baseball caps in the Orland Park mall told cops he was going to sell them to raise money for his mom's tombstone. And he wanted a Sesame Street-themed birthday party, too. Judging by the scowl in his booking mug, he could really use that Sesame Street party.
