Cleveland Police Proud Of Cavs Fans’ Conduct During Championship Celebration (Videos)
You’d think a city who hasn’t won a major professional sports championship in 52 years would be setting the town on fire after ending their over-half-a-century drought.
And you’d be wrong.
Cleveland police chief Calvin Williams said that despite the couple of incidents of crime that were reported overnight, he was very pleased with the manner in which his city’s fans celebrated the Cavs’ victory on Sunday.
According to reports, there were people dancing on cars, climbing on traffic signs, buses and a fire truck, and there was even two reported shootings with one dude getting struck in the ankle.
Doesn’t seem like the tamest celebration, to be honest, but I guess it could have been a lot worse.
Here’s some footage of Cavs fans celebrating their city’s first championship since 1964:
