Denver police arrested 17 people following the Bronco's Super Bowl victory Sunday.

Offenses ranged from drunk driving to trespassing, and throwing things at officers, said Christine Downs, police spokeswoman on Monday morning.

Denver police closed streets leading into downtown Denver and used pepper spray to disperse unruly crowds following the Broncos win.

Two people were also arrested on gun-related charges, Sonny Jackson, police spokesman, said on Sunday night.

No officers were hurt. A window on a police cruiser was shattered in the chaos, part of the small amount of Super Bowl celebration property damage that also included trash cans and patio furniture on the 16th Street Mall being turned over.

"Overall, things went pretty well," Jackson said. "There were a handful of people who were somewhat unruly."
