Street Juggler’s Grenade Causes Stir At San Francisco’s Wharf

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A juggler performing near San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf caused a bit of a stir when it was feared he might be using a live grenade as part of his performance.

Police closed off a block near the popular tourist spot around 5 p.m. Saturday so investigators could take a closer look at the device.

It turned out to be a replica. The area was reopened around 6:15 p.m.

The juggler was detained, but a police spokesman did not know if he had been arrested.

Police did not identity the man. It was not known if he was a regular performer in the area, or had been using the replica grenade in previous juggling acts.
