After 42 years, the 49ers said goodbye Monday night to Candlestick Park, with a 34-24 victory over the Falcons that included a late NaVorro Bowman pick-six exclamation point.

But following the game, police said at least one person was hurt and 30 others were arrested, according to CBS San Francisco.

“There were some thefts of stadium property. ... I know that some seats were destroyed tonight ... I know of some signs being taken off the wall,” San Francisco police Sgt. Danielle Newman said, who added that at least one person was reported injured during the game, though not seriously.

Police said Tuesday morning that 30 people were arrested for property destruction and drunkenness; seven received citations; and 81 people were ejected from the stadium during the game.

Newman said that some drunkenness suspects had to be taken to jails in police substations because the San Francisco County Jail could not handle additional people in that condition Monday night, which isn't unusual.
