PBP SUPER BOWL POST-GAME ACTIVITY

Due to the high volume of visitors and Steelers fans who typically visit the Oakland and South Side areas, traffic restrictions and security plans were put in place by the PBP and the assisting agencies.

The post-game activities were uneventful. There were minimal fights in the South Side area that were quickly resolved by the Mobile Field Forces. There were several small fires quickly extinguished by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire. No injuries.

At this time there one (1) arrest was reported from the South Side at Diesel. Actor was transported to Mercy Hospital for taser evaluation and will be transported to the ACJ. Charges are unknown at this time. No additional reported disturbances.

Chief Harper, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and assisting agencies would like to thank the fans and visitors for responding to the Steeler loss in a responsible manner. This is a testimony to the respect that the fans have for the City and for the Steelers.

Should there be any additional arrests made after the detail is secured, they will be forthcoming on Monday. Super Bowl XLV detail was secured at 11:25PM.
