IBEW hosts polling-place fistfight

Super Tuesday was billed as a fight between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, but one Chicago polling place saw that fight come to actual blows. Chicago Police were called to a West Side polling place Tuesday morning when two female election judges reportedly got into a fight, leaving one injured and one in police custody.

The incident occurred about 10:50 a.m. at 600 W. Washington, according to News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak. An altercation turned physical between two female judges when one judge, in her 50s, was struck in the face by Evon McAllister, 37, of 2800 block of West Jackson Boulevard, police News Affairs Officer Tom Polick said, unable to comment on what started the fight. McAllister was charged with one count of misdemeanor battery.

Fire Media Affairs spokesman Richard Rosado said one person was taken from the Washington Street address in good condition to Rush University Medical Center. An Internet search showed 600 W. Washington is the IBEW Local 134 Hall.
