SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — San Francisco police were busy as the San Francisco 49ers were toppling the Green Bay Packers in a National Football League Divisional playoff game Saturday night at Candlestick Park, police said.

While the 49ers were working towards a 45-31 victory over the Packers, police ejected 92 spectators, Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.

Another 25 at the game were arrested for public intoxication, Andraychak said. Two additional arrests were made for an auto burglary, he said.
