HUNTLEY – An alcohol-fueled argument that started about baseball at a 2-year-old’s birthday party ended with a 32-year-old White Sox fan losing his right eye and three Cubs fans facing felony charges, police said Monday.At a little kid's birthday party, no less.
Steele and his fiancée, April Bieze, said they went to the Abby Cadabby-Sesame Street-themed party that afternoon for Bieze’s 2-year-old niece. Bob Czapla and the other men were drinking vodka and beer and started taunting Steele with claims that White Sox fans had missing teeth, Bieze said.Steele's orbital bone was broken, and he lost an eye. Two of his attackers were arrested, and there is a warrant for the third. They all face prison time, and personally, I hope they get it.
“We were going to leave, but they convinced us that they were just joking around,” Bieze said.
Yet the taunts escalated and turned more personal, Steele said. Bob Czapla punched Steele, and the pair began to struggle before the two other men helped knock him to the garage floor and started kicking him in the head, Steele said.
