While the atmosphere outside AT&T Park may have been euphoric last night after another win by the Giants against the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series, a few people let that euphoria -– and too much alcohol -– get the best of them.
About 9:53 p.m., police arrived to the scene of Second and King streets to break up a fight, Sgt. Monica Macdonald said. One person was injured in the fight but refused medical treatment. No arrests were made in that incident.
Not long after that, three other people not related to the fight were arrested for being drunk in public, Macdonald said.
Then just before 11 p.m., two reportedly intoxicated men were involved in a fight with a homeless man in Parking Lot A near Third and Channel streets, Officer Gordon Shyy said. In that incident, the two men were reported as victims in an assault and battery. Police were unable to interview the victims due to their level of intoxication.
One of the men reportedly tried to assault a paramedic that was trying to assist him, Shyy said.
The men were treated at a hospital for minor injuries.
A witness told police that the two victims had been arguing with a homeless man and the argument turned physical. The homeless man reportedly left before police arrived.
