The unruly behavior at Candlestick Park continues.

The latest ugliness occurred at Sunday’s Opening Day game against the Seattle Seahawks, when according to police, officers were called at 4:30 p.m. to help park security officers with a violent subject.

According to police, security reported the man was “attempting to urinate on people in the bathroom and trying to incite fights with other fans.” It took several officers to get the man handcuffed and on the ground, but the man kicked one of the security guards in the shin, police said.

As officers were walking him out of the stands, the man tried to break free, sending both himself and one officer falling down the stairs, according to police.

While on the ground, the man swore at the officer and spat in his face, police said.

The man was booked on several charges, including battery on an officer, according to police.

Prior incidents this year have included shootings, beatings in restrooms and fights in the stands and in the parking lots. And not all the violence at Candlestick Park involves 49ers games.

Team officials have pledged to clean up behavior at Candlestick. Clearly some fans aren’t getting the message.
