Philadelphia in clean up mode after some Super Bowl celebrations turn unruly

Philadelphia is in clean up mode after pockets of Super Bowl victory celebrations turned unruly, with rowdy Eagles fans smashing department store windows, looting a gas station convenience store and toppling a number of the city's famously greased light poles.

The Eagles won the city's first Championship ring against the New England Patriots 41-33 in Minnesota.

The vast majority of partygoers celebrated peacefully, and only three arrests were made.

Ajeenah Amir, a spokeswoman for Mayor Jim Kenney, said despite a few ugly incidents, the city faithful partied within the rules of the law.

"Tens of thousands came out and celebrated this amazing victory, and but for a handful of bad actors the celebration was peaceful and jubilant," Amir said.

She lauded police for "their assistance in getting the crowds dispersed and people home safely."

But after years of heartbreak, losing records and a Super Bowl loss 10-years ago against the same side, it's easy to understand the rabid fan base going a little over the top.

It was total pandemonium on the streets of Philadelphia.
