It was a family vs. Odyssey Fun World staff in a brawl after an employee told an 18-year-old Indiana man to slow down on the go-karts, police said.
Romel Glover, 18, of the 700 block of Juniper Road, Valparaiso, Ind., was charged with battery, according to police, after starting a brawl at a Tinley Park Odyssey Fun World. After getting off the go-karts, Glover got into an argument with the worker who had repeatedly yelled at him to slow down, police said.
Surveillance footage showed Glover shove a different staffer who was escorting Glover and his mother back to the party room, police said. After this, several Odyssey employees had to step in to separate Glover’s family from the staffer.
A juvenile cousin was also charged, police said. The juvenile’s name is not being released due to his age.
“The juvenile states he saw his aunt and cousin fighting with workers from Odyssey,” the police report read in part. “The juvenile advised me he wanted to help his family and punched one of the workers in the head.”
