Originally, a call came into the Rockford Police Department that shots had been fired that turned out to be false, but when police arrived on the scene, they were in the midst of a massive bar fight.
After midnight Saturday night people started punching, throwing bottles and an officer was even attacked by someone in the rowdy crowd. LT's was packed since there was a birthday party downstairs and a popular band playing upstairs.
Police say the fight broke out at the birthday party and continued outside. In all seven people were taken into custody and face battery charges. Police also found drugs on one of the bar patrons.
Rockford Police shut LT’s down early Saturday night, but this bar and grill is back open.
