The San Francisco 49ers lost the NFC Championship game in dramatic and heartbreaking fashion at Candlestick Park Sunday.

An overtime fumble by backup punt returner Kyle Williams set up an easy field goal and a 20-17 win for the New York Giants.

The sell-out game was mostly crime free according to San Francisco police.

Police said calls for police inside the park were "typical" for a game and arrests included the crimes of public intoxication, misdemeanor battery and "a few resisting arrests," according to police.

Police said one incident in the upper deck included an assault on a male/female police officer team. During that ruckus, one of the officers used pepper spray in their attempt to subdue the man.  The other officer and an uninvolved fan also got an eye-ful of pepper spray, according to police. The unidentified man was arrested with charges pending.  The fan returned to watch the rest of the game after getting their eyes flushed.

There was also one injury to a fan in the parking lot following the game. Police said someone accidentally drove over a person's foot causing a minor injury.
