    Giants Fans Acquitted in Marijuana-Related Assault

    A pair of 19-year old women accused of starting a fight at AT&T Park in April were acquitted of assault charges, according to reports.
    San Francisco resident Brianna Chamorro, 19, and San Bruno resident Amber Hanna, 19, were charged in an April 27 incident in which a 60-year old woman suffered an injury, according to the San Francisco Examiner. The women were part of a group in which someone was smoking marijuana, the newspaper reported. 

    Two women sitting next to the cannabis users asked them to put out the fire, which they did, according to the newspaper. But the smell lingered, which led to the complainant and her 60-year old mother getting up to leave.
    In so doing, "they attempted to aggressively push past" the two 19-year olds, the newspaper reported. "And when Chamorro resisted, the woman allegedly shoved her in the face," the newspaper reported.
    The 60-year old woman fell in the fracas and suffered a bruised hip. The 19-year olds were arrested and charged by prosecutors, but the alleged victims gave testimony that was not credible, and the 19-year olds were acquitted.
