12 people cited or arrested in SF after 49er's win

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -

San Francisco police say a dozen people have been cited or arrested following a celebration marking the win that sent the 49ers to the Super Bowl.

Officer Gordon Shyy said Monday that nine of the 12 incidents in the city's Mission District on Sunday involved public drunkenness. One person was arrested on an outstanding warrant, another for driving under the influence and a third for assault with a deadly weapon.

The spontaneous gathering did not, however, spark the kind of vandalism that accompanied the San Francisco Giants' World Series win in October.

The 49ers claimed the NFC championship title in Atlanta on Sunday. Atlanta police reported that a Falcons fan was stabbed in the neck after getting into a fight with a 49ers fan following the game.
