Man arrested in post-World Series San Francisco vandalism

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco police have arrested a man in connection with the vandalism of a city bus during celebrations following the Giants World Series victory.

Twenty-two-year-old Gregory Tyler Graniss was taken into custody on Tuesday and booked into county jail on suspicion of felony vandalism and injuring or destroying a passenger transit vehicle.

Police say Graniss was identified with the help of a photo published in the San Francisco Chronicle that showed a man smashing the windshield of the bus with a barrier just after midnight on Monday morning.

Several businesses also had their windows smashed and a city bus was set on fire in the sometimes rowdy celebrations that followed Sunday's World Series win. Dozens of people were arrested.

Investigators are continuing to try to identify a suspect in the bus torching.
