To post. “Christopher Hampton, 18, of Maywood, Illinois, and Tembra Hicks, 20, of Carol Stream, Illinois, have both been charged with assault and battery in connection with the incident.”
It is still unclear what sparked the violence and the airport has not confirmed whether those present had previously flown. Chicago police say it started with an unspecified “verbal argument” that culminated in the violence being filmed.
