Over the weekend, Mexican-American communities throughout the U.S. took part in festivities honoring Mexican Independence Day. While jovial celebrations in places like Los Angeles made headlines with feel-good stories, Chicago was a different ordeal. Several videos from Mexican Independence Day in Chicago have already gone viral, and some of them include shootings and wild melees. Perhaps the buzzworthy incident occurred when a machete-wielding man got into a scuffle with a group of fellow Chicagoans in Little Village, Chicago. One of his targets included a man with a lucha libre wrestling mask on. Fittingly enough, the guy with the lucha libre mask quickly ducked when the machete-wielding man took a swing at him before he ended up putting him in the headlock, which forced him to drop the machete.
