CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Six men face charges after a crowd allegedly tried to free a man being arrested Wednesday night at a Lawndale memorial service attended by about 100 people.

It was the second day in a row that a crowd of people interfered with police arresting someone with a gun.

Wednesday's incident began when police arrested a man with a gun in the 2700 block of West Flournoy Street, Chicago police said.

Officers placed him in a police cruiser at about 10:30 p.m. then a crowd surrounded the vehicle and tried pulling on the doors to let him out, police said. Several people were arrested, and no injuries were reported.

Charges are filed against:

  • Quincy Phillips, 23, of Lawndale, a felony count of unauthorized use of a weapon;
  • Kentrall Hayes, 20, of Austin, two felony counts of battery to an officer, three misdemeanor counts of resisting an officer;
  • Darrell Crawford, 32, of Lawndale, a felony count of battery to an officer, one misdemeanor count of resisting an officer;
  • Jaques Bryant, 24, of East Garfield Park, two misdemeanor counts of resisting an officer;
  • Quincy Phillips, 41, of Austin, two misdemeanor counts of resisting an officer, a misdemeanor count each of battery and mob action; and
  • Lazaris Mabins, 25, of West Town, a misdemeanor count of reckless conduct.

They are all expected to appear for bail hearings later Thursday.

On Tuesday, a crowd of people allegedly threw bottles at officers while the officers were arresting someone with a gun following a Wentworth Gardens shooting that wounded a 5-year-old girl and two other teens.
