Another round of rowdy behavior by soccer fans ends in arrests

Soccer or as it is called in Spanish fútbol is sacred in Costa Rica, so the riot that took place Sunday in the Estadio Nacional has captured the attention of most residents. The Fuerza Pública detained more than 50 persons, and the  Cartago-Alajuela game was suspended

The judiciary is seeking anyone who may have been affected by the disturbances. Those who have been arrested are fans of the Alajuela team, and they have been a pain to police for years.

Officers are even on high alert when the fans are gathering to get a bus ride to the various games.

In this latest incident, investigators are studying video of the game and the disturbances to identify those involved.

The Poder Judicial said Monday that there was not sufficient evidence against those who were detained.
