Police say ING Bay to Breakers ‘relatively peaceful’ 

This year’s ING Bay to Breakers footrace and party was described by police on Sunday afternoon as being generally peaceful.

Fewer than five arrests were made, all on public drunkenness charges, San Francisco Police Department spokesman Samson Chan said.

“It was relatively peaceful,” Chan said. “There were a handful of calls for ambulances regarding minor injuries and for some people who drank so much they weren’t able to walk.”

Emergency crews worked to resuscitate a man who collapsed at the end of the race suffering an apparent heart attack.
