Skater Skirmish With SFPD Leaves Officer Injured, Police Cars Vandalized (PHOTO, VIDEOS)
(BANT) – An officer was injured and two police cars were vandalized Tuesday evening after a near-riot at San Francisco’s Dolores Park between over a hundred skateboarders and police.
Officers initially responded to near 19th and Dolores Streets around 8:13 p.m. to break up large crowds that had gathered at the park. Police say some in the crowd starting throwing things at officers. The officer who was injured was taken to a hospital and two police cars had windows broken.
Posts on social media also showed a couple of skateboarders enduring some nasty wipeouts. You can see video of those incidents below. The first was posted to Twitter by a user named @jimmyalto. The second was posted to Instagram by a user named Mattmilanoart:
