SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — San Francisco’s police chief Thursday condemned those who disrupted the street celebrations of the Giants World Series win, saying it was shameful that three police officers had to be hospitalized because of attacks during the impromptu street parties.
Chief Greg Suhr said he encountered a lot of “jerks” out on the streets during the revelry following the Game 7 win over the Kansas City Royals and was even struck in the leg himself by a bottle. Suhr said he wasn’t hurt, but other officers and members of the public were not as fortunate.

“Having been in these situations many, many times, there were as many bottles thrown at police officers last night as I can remember,” Suhr said, adding that one officer reported being hit three times over the course of the night.
“The worst spots that we had were down by the ballpark and out in the Mission, and it’s just disgraceful that they just don’t get it.”
