SF sweeps up after rowdy Series celebration
35 arrested, torched public transit bus among the aftermath
SAN FRANCISCO — Police made dozens of arrest during a rowdy World Series celebration in the hours after the San Francisco Giants clinched the World Series.
The San Francisco Police Department reported Monday that 35 people were arrested, 22 on felony charges. Two people were arrested on gun charges.
Bonfires of trash were lit in several intersections around the city, and a public transit bus was torched. Windows of several businesses and vehicles were broken, including a news van.
Firefighters had police escorts as they fought fires fueled by couches, news racks and other debris. Much of the vandalism occurred in the city's Mission District, where 24 of the arrests occurred.
Police spokesman Albie Esparza says the department didn't yet have a damage estimate.
