City wakes up to ‘relatively calm’ morning

San Francisco was “relatively calm and peaceful” Tuesday morning after vast crowds gathered throughout the city to celebrate the new year, San Francisco police Sgt. Steve Mannina said.

The largest reported crowd of people in the city gathered to watch a fireworks display at the Embarcadero from midnight to 12:15 a.m., and the crowd dispersed shortly after the show ended, according to Mannina.

Two stabbings that were considered “not too severe” were reported around 2 a.m. in the Washington Square area of the city’s North Beach neighborhood, Mannina said.

One person was arrested on suspicion of possessing a firearm at Drumm and Market streets in the city’s Financial District, according to Mannina. A road-rage incident in the city’s Mission District led to a firearm arrest as well, Mannina said.

Twenty-five people were arrested on suspicion of being drunk in public throughout the city’s North Beach, Marina, Russian Hill and Tenderloin neighborhoods, the Mission District and the Embarcadero, according to Mannina.
