Several people suffered minor injuries at Wednesday night's game between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers when a fan threw a firecracker onto a walkway at AT&T Park, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

According to authorities, a minimum of five people reported minor injuries, which included dizziness and temporary loss of hearing. 

A man sitting in the outfield bleachers wearing Giants gear threw a firecracker into a concourse that was near a concession stand, witnesses said.

Umpires halted play after a loud explosion was heard and smoke was seen from the area above right-center field. The Giants went on to beat the Dodgers, 2-1, after play resumed.

Security officers detained 21-year-old Paolo Pavone, who was booked on suspicion of willfully discharging and possessing an explosive and discharging a firework in a public place.

"A number of people were screaming and running from the area," said Officer Gordon Shyy, a San Francisco police spokesman.
