Something a street performer uses to entertain crowds at Fisherman's Wharf caused a bomb scare this weekend.
Police evacuated the area Saturday after someone reported a juggler was using a "live" hand grenade in his act. It turned out to be a toy, but the bomb squad didn't figure that out until after the evacuation order. Police shut down Jefferson Street between Jones and Taylor Streets at 5 p.m.
Several people say the incident caused some real fear.
"I was a little bit scared and then my co-worker told me, oh run, run run, so I was a little bit afraid," Jennifer Wong said.
The wharf was shut down for about two hours.
