PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia police say the vast majority of fans who were partying before and after the huge Eagles victory, did so peacefully. But there were several arrests.Flyers Fans Return To Packed Wells Fargo Center For First Time In More Than 500 Days
While most of the Eagles fans who were out celebrating did so without causing problems, Police Commissioner Richard Ross says it wasn’t a complete shutout.
“When you get upwards of tens of thousands of people in different locations you’re gonna get some fights. Mostly minor in nature,” said Ross.

In one instance, police say a man named Andrew Tornetta punched a Pennsylvania State Police Corporal and his horse. It happened in Lot M about three hours before the Eagles game started. Tornetta now faces assault charges. There were also two disorderly conduct arrests and three for counterfeit tickets.
Still, because of the hard work of the cops and all the fans who celebrated without causing trouble, Ross says Sunday was a win.
“I think in the grand scheme of things it went very well,” said Ross.
SEPTA reported no problems, as the Broad Street line was at peak capacity.
“We did a record breaking 29,045 fans that came through AT&T, I can tell you SEPTA personnel showed up and showed out,” Carla Showell-Lee said.MORE NEWS: Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Surprises Football Team At Alma Mater Freedom High School In Bethlehem With Video
