Fans flout COVID-19 rules to party on Tampa streets after Buccaneers’ Super Bowl win


Fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers flouted COVID-19 restrictions and flooded city streets Sunday night in a raucous celebration of the team’s Super Bowl LV victory.

The crowd blocked traffic, turning at least one intersection into a dance floor after the hometown Buccaneers’ 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, according to footage posted to Twitter by Fox 13 reporter Gloria Gomez.

Other rowdy fans hopped atop cars and even a public bus amid the impromptu victory party, according to a photo tweeted by another Fox 13 reporter, Jennifer Holton.

The revelers mainly avoided social distancing and face masks, according to numerous videos posted online.

One person was reportedly arrested for climbing a tree.

Video posted to Twitter by Fox 13 reporter Jordan Bowen shows two fans violently rocking as loud music blasts in the background.

Tampa Bay on Sunday became the first team to play and win a Super Bowl in its home stadium.
