Firework injures fans during Dodgers-Giants game

By Associated Press

POSTED:



SAN FRANCISCO >> Police say several people suffered minor injuries when a fan threw a firework onto a walkway at the San Francisco Giants ballpark during a Dodgers-Giants game.

A loud bang was heard around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, with smoke visible above right-center field.

Witnesses reported seeing a man in a Giants hat in the outfield bleachers throw a large firecracker into a group of people near a concession stand. At least five people reported injuries, including dizziness and temporary loss of hearing.

Police spokesman Gordon Shyy says 21-year-old Paolo Pavone was arrested and booked on suspicion of willfully discharging and possessing an explosive, and discharging a firework in a public place.

The Giants beat the Dodgers 2-1.
