SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say 28 San Francisco transit vehicles suffered an estimated $140,000 in damage in the violent celebrations following the Giants’ World Series victory.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/148LZ9y ) that the figure by the Municipal Transportation Agency does not include labor costs for repairs or lost revenue while transit vehicles were out of service. The damage included broken windows and graffiti.

Nine police vehicles were also vandalized in the wake of the Oct. 29 win, though the cost of that damage has not been released. Police also made dozens of arrests.

The Giants won their third World Series championship in five years. When the team won the series in 2012, revelers caused $700,000 worth of damage to a city bus.
