We are aware of the incident that took place at the WWE event on Saturday, November 12. Fortunately, our Peoria Civic Center security team along with the Peoria Police quickly identified the individuals responsible and escorted them out of the building for the remainder of the show.

As a classy woman from Chicago, I’m not surprised that something like this would happen in Peoria. 🤢
PS. To the granny who threw the drink, your booze was as cheap as your hairdo. 😘
