"Public urination now carries a steep fine and jail time in Chicago. A new public urination ordinance -- a reaction to complaints about urinating Cubs and White Sox fans -- was approved July 31. It carries fines of 100 to 500 dollars and jail terms of five to ten days for repeat offenders. In the past, public urination was prosecuted with charges of either indecent exposure or disorderly conduct."


I thought it was just because of cub fans and the fact that the neighbor hood bumps right up to wrigley field. I never heard anything about this being passed because of comiskey park.

I'm pretty sure they just took the text from the Trib story.

Which you can read in the PL thread, called "bad news for Cub fans".
