SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — About 100 seats and 25 signs were damaged at Candlestick Park in the San Francisco 49ers’ regular season swan song on Monday night, where at least one person was hurt and 30 others arrested, police said.
Only two seats were stolen but police recovered both while arresting the alleged thief, according to San Francisco police Sgt. Eric O’Neal.
The remainder of the seats and the 25 section and row signs were damaged by fans who attempted to remove them as souvenirs, O’Neal said.
The fans attended Monday’s game at the 53-year-old Candlestick Park—the 49ers’ final regular season game there—to watch the home team defeat the Atlanta Falcons 34-24.
