65 Arrested for Public Intoxication Over Pride Weekend

At least 65 arrests for public intoxication were made in San Francisco in neighborhoods hosting Pride celebrations on Saturday, a police spokesman said.

San Francisco police Officer Gordon Shyy said 65 of the arrests on Saturday were for public intoxication and that six more arrests were for felonies, including possession of a knife, illegal possession of a firearm and illegal possession of ammunition. Four more arrests were for misdemeanors.

Sunday’s Pride parade along Market Street brought participants and spectators together to celebrate and support the LGBT community around the world. Families with children, elected officials and massive amounts of employees from Bay Area companies joined in the parade.

Among those supporting the LGBT cause and participating in the pride parade, were Cupertino-based Apple, Oakland-based Kaiser Permanente, San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi, as well as San Francisco supervisors David Chiu and David Campos.
