Police escort, control crowd during parade

Miami Heat's championship parade rolls through downtown

Headline Goes Here


While some police officers served as the escorts during the Miami Heat's championship parade, others worked crowd control.

At least two people were treated for heat exhaustion.

"There were some people passing out for the heat, " said South Miami Police Corp. Alexander Hechavarria.

The job was made more difficult by some fans who climbed atop railroad trellises outside the AmericanAirlines Arena (pictured below). Others apparently climbed on top of police cars.

"The only other people that we got caught were on top of our cars," added Hechavarria. "I guess they wanted to stand and see the parade."

No arrests were reported.
