    As the San Francisco 49ers played their last regular season game Monday night at Candlestick Park, beating the Atlanta Falcons 34-24, several fans were either kicked out, arrested and one was even hurt during the thrilling, bittersweet game.

    As the San Francisco 49ers played their last regular season game Monday night at Candlestick Park, beating the Atlanta Falcons 34-24, several fans were either kicked out, arrested and one was even hurt during the thrilling, bittersweet game.

    Sgt. Danielle Newman said 81 people at the game were "ejected" from the stadium, 30 were arrested and 7 were cited. Some of the fans were drunk, she said, and there were some reported thefts of stadium property - such as the seats.

    At least one person was reported injured during the game, but not seriously, Newman said. And other fans had to be turned away because they had counterfeit tickets.

    After the game, Candlestick Park was left with a barrage of trash both in the parking lot and inside the stadium. NBC Bay Area's chopper took aerial images of the stadium, littered with debris.

    San Francisco Parks and Recreation spokesperson Connie Chan said about 100 seats were broken, and 25 signs were damaged.

    As of now, the 49ers will no longer play at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, but at a new $1.2 billion stadium being built in Santa Clara, which should be ready by the start of the 2014 NFL season.

    Will Kane of the San Francisco Chronicle tweeted these photos from the scene where the seats were stolen.
