A total of 25 people were arrested in San Francisco Sunday night for public intoxication, according to preliminary numbers released by police.

Despite the arrests, police reported quiet conditions overall in the Mission District and elsewhere in the city following the San Francisco 49ers’ 34-31 Super Bowl loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

While a few people threw bottles at police officers at 24th and Hampshire streets, the incident was quickly contained without any injuries, according to Officer Carlos Manfredi.

One person was also arrested after they tried to light something on fire around 16th and Mission Streets, Manfredi said.

Police were out in force in potential hot spots such as the Mission District in an effort to prevent a repeat of the violence and vandalism that marred celebrations of the San Francisco Giants’ World Series victory in October. Manfredi described the overall mood of city crowds as “low key.”

“It’s pretty quiet and everyone is behaving,” said Manfredi, who was speaking from 24th and Mission Streets.

Elsewhere in the city, in neighborhoods such as the Haight Ashbury, fans reported a somber mood but no violence.

Mayor Ed Lee congratulated the 49ers for their “spectacular performance” this evening.
“The entire team demonstrated what you can accomplish with enough perseverance and teamwork,” Lee said in a statement.

“The journey of the 49ers in their ‘Quest for Six’ reinvigorated San Francisco Bay Area football fans in a way unseen for nearly two decades,” Lee added.

Buses that were rerouted off of Market Street during Sunday’s game returned to Market Street around 9 p.m., according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, and streets that were closed in the Mission District reopened.
