Chicago police pull over taxi crammed with 5 men in Loop

CHICAGO (WLS) -- An unusual traffic stop was caught on video in downtown Chicago early Thursday morning.

Police pulled over the taxi around 3 a.m. near State Street and Jackson Boulevard in the Loop because it was very overcrowded.

The Toyota Prius was jammed with five adult men, in addition to the driver. The passengers were told to exit the car and find a different way to their destination.

It looks like the driver was given a ticket.
