Police: 40 arrested during Giants celebrations

The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) San Francisco police say they made 40 arrests, most for public drunkenness, during the celebrations that followed the Giants World Series victory over the Kansas City Royals.

Police Chief Greg Suhr announced the figure at a news conference on Thursday.

Police were pelted with bottles as they tried to disperse rowdy crowds after the Wednesday win. Suhr said three officers were treated at the hospital for injuries they sustained when they were hit by bottles.

Police have also said two people were shot and another two stabbed in separate incidents, although it was not immediately clear whether they were connected to the revelry.

Suhr said some businesses were tagged, and nine police cars damaged. He did not have a damage estimate.
