S.F. Files Charges Against Five in Post-Victory Riot
San Francisco prosecutors have charged five city residents for felonies in connection with Sunday night's rioting after the Giants World Series victory.
Charges include assaulting police officers and discharging a shotgun in the air.
District Attorney George Gascon says he expects better behavior at Wednesday's Giants' victory parade.
"What occurred last Sunday was unexcusable," Gascon said at a Tuesday press conference. "We had a few people that under the disguise of saying that they were celebrating the Giants win, they caused a great deal of damage. And we want to send a very clear message, we will prosecute every one of those cases that is presented to us."
The city hasn't given a damage estimate from the vandalism, which included the torching of a Muni bus at Third and Market streets.
Police say they're hoping that reaching out via social media may lead to the identification and arrest of some of those photographed destroying the bus.
