A man allegedly livestreamed a fight among three women in Normal, and is now being charged with multiple felonies.
Police were called early Sunday morning after a Facebook livestream appeared to show two women beating up another woman. Police arrived at the apartment complex and heard a sound that resembled a gunshot, which activated a SWAT team response, especially after people inside the apartment did not respond to demands that they exit.
The man who livestreamed the fight will be charged with nonconsensual dissemination of a sex image, publishing obscenity, and two counts of unlawful recording of a video at a residence, according to the Bloomington Pantagraph. He was not named because he had not yet been formally charged.
Later, two men were charged with assault and other felonies, but those charges were related to a different incident, according to the Pantagraph.
