Four men were arrested and one remains at large after a brawl broke out between them around 1:28 a.m. at BlackFinn American Saloon Oct. 27. One of the men had to be subdued with a Tazer, according to the Naperville Police Department.
Officers were in the area of the bar Saturday when they "observed several subjects fighting," according to a police press release. Police said the men began fighting inside BlackFinn before spilling into the street.

According to the Naperville Sun, McLaughlin was Tazed by police after allegedly trying to grab the Tazer from an officer.
