Multiple stores and an 18-wheeler trailer were looted amid the Los Angeles Dodgers World Series win celebration Tuesday night.

Police arrested eight people and reported injuries to three Los Angeles Police officers, according to NBC Los Angeles. Four people were arrested for looting, three for reckless driving and one for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, the outlet reported.

Looters reportedly broke into a store and stole shoes, as well as an 18-wheeler passing through a crowd of fans. Looters shot fireworks on the corner of a downtown street, started a bonfire and threw glass bottles at police, the outlet reported.

The Dodgers won the World Series for the first time in 32 years. The final score was 3-1. The last time the Dodgers won a World Series was against the New York Mets in 1988.

The Dodgers encouraged fans to celebrate the “proper way” with a video of sportscaster Vin Scully.

“I know you want to celebrate like everybody else, but let’s do it properly, let’s do it the way the Dodgers did, with pride in themselves and pride in our great city,” Scully said in the video. “Let’s show the rest of the country that we know how to celebrate the proper way.”
