The fight broke out during an open bowl promotional night. Cicero police said the night has sparked trouble in the past.

Police told ABC7 they have told the establishment to call 911 immediately when there's a problem, but that night they said no one picked up the phone. Instead, someone ran outside and flagged down a patrol car and by that time the suspect had left.

Diamante Williams suffered a skull fracture and subdural hematoma, and had to be placed in a medically induced coma to help with his recovery.

Easton is due to appear in bond court soon.
