A violent confrontation aboard a North Side, Red Line CTA train was recently posted on YouTube.
Here's what happened....
On Friday, September 16, 2011, at approximately 11 p.m., three men lost their tempers as a CTA train approached the Sheridan "L" stop at 3940 North Sheridan Road.
According to an eyewitness, two black men were playing a radio and disturbing the other passengers.
When the men refused to stop playing their music, a white male CTA passenger, who was possibly intoxicated, grabbed their radio and threatened to throw it from the train.
That's when the two black passengers attacked the white passenger, said YouTube user rockhopper323, who is also responsible for uploading the video to YouTube.
In the beginning of the two-minutes and 19-seconds long video, the two black commuters can be seen pummeling the white passenger in the head and face with their fists - leaving him with a bloody nose.
Within seconds, the escalating brawl spilled into the train's narrow aisle.
Several passengers tried to escape the violence by fleeing their seats.
