Emotions are high as the Cubs and Brewers square off in a battle for first place.For some, the emotions are too high. Three Chicago men are accused of beating up a Milwaukee man following Tuesday night's game.

Tuesday night's incident took place right outside of Miller Park at 10:30 p.m. while fans were stuck in traffic. The brawl landed a Brewers fan in the hospital, and it landed three Cubs fans in the Milwaukee County Jail.

Police apparently have a videotape, and were trying to sort out exactly what happened.

Twenty-four-year-old Brandon Feezor of West Allis, Wis., spent four hours in surgery Wednesday for a broken jaw. The Brewer fan told his mother he left in anger after the Brewers lost to the Cubs 7-1.

Authorities said he threw a bottle of Red Bull at a bus full of Cubs fans, and three fans got off and allegedly beat him up. Two men, ages 25 and 26, are from Downers Grove and another is from Joliet. The 34-year-old from Joliet has been released and cited with disorderly conduct.

The felony battery charges are pending against the other two men. Feezor was also cited for disorderly conduct in the incident and is expected to be released from the hospital Wednesday night. His jaw will be wired shut for the next couple weeks. Feezor does not have health insurance and is stuck paying for the medical bills.

The 25-year-old and the 26-year-old from Downers Grove are expected to be charged Thursday.

Wednesday's game is scheduled for 7 p.m. And the Cubs also play the Brewers once again Thursday for their fourth game at 1 p.m.
