Tens of thousands of fans took to downtown streets Sunday night to celebrate the Cavs historic win and there were just a few problems. Police said the celebration was mainly peaceful.

Police arrested just five people, the majority for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. Fans celebrated into the early Monday morning hours.

There were a few problems. A man fell through the roof of a RTA bus shelter, fans climbed onto a fire truck and another jumped onto a police cruiser. "If the price of a championship is one police car, I'll give that every time," said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams. 

During the celebration, there was a feeling of happiness, pride and respect on the streets. "I appreciate the people of Cleveland doing it the Cleveland way again," added Williams.

Cleveland police were seen giving fans high fives all night and taking pictures with fans.

"I think last night was a good dress rehearsal for the RNC," said Safety Committee Chairman Cleveland Councilman Matt Zone.
