PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - The Peoria County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a report of a 100 person fight and a 4-year-old punched at the Peoria Speedway, Saturday night.

Around 10:30 pm, Peoria County Sheriff Chris Watkins says deputies were dispatched to a report of 100 people fighting. There were no fights when deputies arrived, but there were several reports of people fighting in the stands and on the track.

One report involved a 4-year-old punched in the face. Watkins says the suspect left, but witnesses obtained a photo of the suspect. Another report indicates a driver at the Speedway was also involved in a fight.

There were races scheduled that evening, but it is unclear if they were still going on during the fights. No arrests have been made.
