A new kind of flash mob stopped traffic in Chicago's Loop this week after a group of people and children started a dance party on top of their SUV, in the middle of a busy intersection.
Police responded to disturbance calls around 1:15 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of LaSalle and Monroe Street after witnesses reported several adults and four children were on top of a Chevy Tahoe dancing in traffic, according to Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic.
The incident was captured on video by witnesses. The group is seen grooving to Ellie Goulding’s “Lights.”
Police said the three adults were taken into custody and the four children were turned over to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.
A 59-year-old man, a 36-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were arrested and charged with misdemeanor counts of “causing a child to be endangered.”
The adults were from San Tan Valley, Ariz., Sedevic said.
