Super Bowl parade 2013: Fans break police barriers

bluerainworld

Ravens fans have broke some of the police barriers and are running alongside the players' vehicles as they head toward a max capacity crowd at M&T Bank Stadium.

Traffic delayed the start of the Super Bowl parade, but it didn't delay the celebration. Fans have been partying in M&T Bank Stadium and on the streets of Baltimore all day awaiting the arrival of the Super Bowl champion Ravens. Now that the team has begun to parade down the street, fans have broken through and over the police barriers so they can run along side the players' vehicles. Meanwhile, M&T Bank Stadium has reached maximum capacity and is no longer open to fans.

Mounted police have no joined the parade to keep fans back from players in exposed vehicles, like Ray Lewis in his personal humvee.

The team was scheduled to arrive at M&T Bank Stadium at 12:30 p.m ET, but the delay and large crowds have pushed things back. Regardless, it doesn't seem like the delay is going to dampen the spirits of anyone in Baltimore today.
