26grenade.jpg Police this morning released the name of a San Francisco street performer who caused a scare in Fisherman’s Wharf on Saturday by juggling what appeared to be a hand grenade.

Keith Wolfe, 32, who has no fixed address, has been cited for misdemeanor possession of a prohibited weapon and an infraction for violating a municipal code by blocking a street or sidewalk, police Officer Albie Esparza said.

A police bomb squad responded to the 300 block of Jefferson Street at about 5 p.m. Saturday after a passerby called to report the juggler.

The block was closed off until about 6:20 p.m. when investigators determined that the object was only a replica and was harmless, Esparza said.
