The San Francisco Police Department arrested over 80 skateboarders during last weekend's Dolores Hillbomb event.
What was supposed to be an exciting and adrenaline-filled day for core skateboarders turned into a chaotic scene as law enforcement cracked down on participants.
The Dolores Hillbomb event has become a popular tradition in the skateboarding community, drawing skaters from all over the Bay Area and beyond.
Skaters gather at the top of Dolores Street, a steep incline that offers an exhilarating ride down.
The event has always been an informal and unpermitted gathering, attracting amateur skaters and professionals looking to test their skills.
However, this year's event took an unexpected turn when the San Francisco Police Department intervened. Shortly after the event began, police officers descended upon the scene, citing safety concerns and violations of traffic laws.
They quickly started apprehending skateboarders, leading to a tense standoff between the skaters and law enforcement.
