(CBS/AP) BOSTON - Amid the frenzied celebration of the Boston Red Sox World Series victory, authorities say most fans played by the rules. The Suffolk District Attorney's office reported that police made 10 arrests in the city, mostly for disorderly conduct.
There were no reports of serious damage but at least one car was overturned.
After the deciding game, a 6-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals, police set up barriers to funnel the crowds away from Fenway Park and mounted police and officers on bicycles patrolled the area. Some fans were obviously intoxicated. A few young men climbed a pole holding a traffic light.
A large group gathered near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street, chanting and blocking traffic until police arrived.
Throughout the night, the Boston police department had tweeted cautionary messages, encouraging fans to "Celebrate with pride" and "Celebrate responsibly." Police later thanked the "tens of thousands" of Red Sox fans who took their warnings seriously.
Elsewhere in the state, officials at the University of Massachusetts said 15 people - all but one of them students - were arrested after thousands gathered on the Amherst campus to celebrate. Most of those arrested were charged with failing to disperse and two with assault and battery on a police officer. No injuries were reported.
In New Hampshire, celebrations turned destructive at several college campuses. In the largest incident, University of New Hampshire officials say police used pepper spray and pepper balls to break up a crowd of several hundred students that gathered at the Durham campus. Officials said some of the students threw bottles and cans at officers; five were arrested on disorderly conduct charges.
At Keene State College, police also used pepper spray after students flipped over a vehicle and threw rocks, glass bottles and ice. No one was arrested.
Boston Mayor Tom Menino announced Thursday the city will hold a "rolling rally" celebration for the team starting at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Boston has hosted several celebrations over the last decade as the Celtics, Patriots, Bruins and Red Sox have all won titles since 2004.
That year, a 21-year-old college student was killed by a pepper pellet fired by Boston police during crowd-control efforts following the Red Sox win in the American League Championship Series. In 2008, a 22-year-old man died after police took him into custody during street celebrations of the Celtics' title.
