Five people have been charged in connection with a street fight near a Fairview Heights residence.
The brawl was reported at just after 5 p.m. Friday near a home on Countryside Lane, according to police reports.
“As officers arrived on scene they observed multiple subjects running towards a vehicle which was parked on the roadway and enter it,” according to a Fairview Heights Police Department report. “The officers stopped the vehicle and made contact with the occupants.
“Three of the four occupants were identified to be participants in the fight with subject who resides in the area,” police said.
