Not everyone behaved themselves when celebrating U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's historic win Tuesday night.
Some fired gunshots, a felon accused cops of arresting him "because a black man won for president" and a teenager standing with throngs of passionate revelers used the opportunity to slap a police officer, Cook County prosecutors said.
"White bitches. F--- McCain. You white police can't do nothing," 19-year-old Celita Hart taunted officers as she stood with a throng of Obama supporters in the 6900 block of South Western Avenue, Assistant State's Attorney Lorraine Scaduto said in a court Wednesday. At some point, authorities said, Hart left the crowd, which had been chanting "Obama, Obama," walked up to a squad car, and smacked a male officer in the face.
