BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Baltimore City police had their hands full managing the huge crowds of celebrating Ravens fans who took to the streets after Sunday night’s victory.

Derek Valcourt has more on the situations police were forced to deal with.

It was quite a party but at times the purple party did get out of hand.

In Fells Point, thousands of people danced in the streets.

Sky Eye Chopper 13 was over the scene as crowds filled the streets of Federal Hill.

It wasn’t long before drunken Ravens fans took their celebrations too far, jumping on the hoods of cars, smashing windshields and even trying to topple a car.

Police rushed in to literally push the crowds back.

In fact, police had all hands on deck to deal with the crowds.

“We’ve trained for it. We’ve prepared for it.  We had contingencies in place and even reserve officers in place should things have gotten out of control,” a Baltimore City police officer said.
