Six teenagers have been released without charges after they were arrested for fighting patrons and police at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, resulting in four officers being injured.

The Gurnee Police Department received reports of the fighting around 7:15 p.m. Monday at the theme park, located at 1 Great America Parkway in Gurnee.

Witnesses reported a fight started between two groups inside the park near the front gates.

The disturbance spread into the parking lot and officers responded, the police department said.

Officers, who were already stationed at the park, intervened to stop the large crowd fighting.

Initial attempts to disperse the crowd were unsuccessful, prompting a police officer to deploy pepper spray into the “disruptive crowd.”
