San Bruno Man Arrested for Throwing Fireworks During Giants-Dodgers Game

Umpires temporarily stopped the game while officers tried to figure out what happened.

By Bay City News Service:

A fan was arrested after allegedly throwing fireworks from the bleachers at AT&T Park into a bar area during the San Francisco Giants game on Wednesday night, a police spokesman said.

At about 9:30 p.m., officers at the ballpark heard a loud explosion and saw smoke coming from the Coors Light bar area behind the bleachers, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

Umpires temporarily stopped the game while officers tried to figure out what happened. Multiple people had pain, dizziness and temporary loss of hearing from the explosion, Shyy said.

No one was seriously injured in the blast and all were treated at the stadium.

A suspect in Section 142 of the bleachers had allegedly stood up and threw something back toward the bar area, Shyy said.

He was arrested and identified as Paolo Alessio Pavone, 21, of San Bruno, and was booked on suspicion of willful and malicious explosion of a destructive device, reckless or malicious possession of a destructive device and throwing or discharging a firework in a public place, Shyy said.

The game was not delayed for long and the Giants went on to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1.
