SAN FRANCISCO – There were 30 arrests during the San Francisco 49ers’ final regular-season game at Candlestick Park on Monday, police said.

Most of the arrests were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium, Sgt. Eric O’Neal said.

Police had to transport suspects to smaller lockups at district police stations because San Francisco’s jail became so full at one point, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

An additional 81 people were ejected and seven people cited, police said.

Nonetheless, O’Neal said the event went well overall.

“For such a large number of people, there were a very small number of arrests,” O’Neal said. “We’re very pleased with that.”

A crowd of 69,732 saw the 49ers beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-24 to clinch a playoff spot.

There were fireworks and a musical performance after the game.

The Niners began playing at The Stick in 1971. The team is moving to a $1.2 billion stadium in Santa Clara next season.
