Five Chicago Police officers were injured early Sunday during a brawl while responding to a complaint of loud music on the Southwest Side, police said.

Thirteen people, including two women, were taken into custody after the fight in the 2800 block of West 25th, police said.

Officers arrived to find more than 30 people in the alley and some immediately began throwing bottles and debris at the cops, police said. Some even threw cans of food.

When others began fighting with police, officers called for additional help.

One officer required three staples after having a glass bottle thrown at his head, O’Brien said.

Charges were pending Sunday evening.

The injured cops were treated and released from a local hospital for their injuries.
