The Sox fan on the far side near the pole was talking trash from the beginning, so in the 4th inning he gets into it with another Sox fan when he starts talking about the guy in the Thome Jersey's "family"...then an old guy steps up and off they go...

A good minute goes by with no security, the guy gets owned by a bunch of cubs and sox fans.

he still fights the security...continues struggling, as his eye is black and bleeding, they handcuff him throw his shirt over his head and get him out of there.

It happened in section 536 at the Cell...

According to a ChicagoSports.com article:

Doesn't sound like the brawling in the stands at Saturday's Cubs-White Sox game had much to do with Cubs against the Sox.

According to Tom Lamb, head of security at U.S. Cellular Field, the Sox don't know what precipitated the brawl, but apparently some money fell out of the purse of a woman, and another fan picked it up and refused to give it back. That led to several fans punching the alleged offender. Video of the action showed a Cubs fan joining in on the same side as some White Sox fans.

The man, Brian Nolan of Woodridge, was charged with theft and taken to district headquarters at 35th and Lowe Avenue and then to the First District lockup, according to a police source. He was released Saturday night on an I-bond.

"He got thumped pretty good," Lamb said. "He did admit that he picked up the money that fell out of the purse, and said he didn't have to give it back."

Actually, the cause of the fight may have been more personal than money. At least that's what it says at BustedCoverage.com.

*sorry for the shakiness, there was a lot of pushing everywhere
