SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Police in San Francisco have arrested a 22-year-old man on charges of vandalism after a public transit bus was destroyed after the Giants won the World Series.
Gregory Tyler Graniss of San Francisco was taken into custody Tuesday on felony charges of vandalism and injuring or destroying a passenger transit vehicle.
Police cited tips and a photo published by the San Francisco Chronicle as help in tracking down Graniss. The photo shows a man smashing the windshield of the bus early Monday morning as the city celebrated its World Series sweep against the Detroit Tigers the night before. The transit bus was also torched.
“This was a senseless act of destruction, and there is no tolerance for such criminal behavior in San Francisco,” Police Chief Greg Suhr said in a statement. ”With assistance from the public, investigators moved swiftly to identify this suspect and make an arrest. Investigators are also working tirelessly to identify those responsible for setting the bus on fire and to bring them to justice.”
Along with the revelry, violence and vandalism were reported that night, including several trashcan fires, a vehicle that had been flipped over and broken windows at several businesses.
