HUNTINGTON PARK, Calif. (AP) — Police say four people were arrested in the Los Angeles area after celebrations of Mexico's advancement into the next round of soccer's World Cup grew rowdy and poured into the street.

Huntington Park police say one woman was arrested for throwing a bottle, another for refusing to leave the area and two for public drunkenness.

Most of the dozens of fans who waved Mexican flags and celebrated on sidewalks on Monday afternoon were peaceful, urging passing drivers to honk and exchanging high-fives with some of them.

But police and sheriff's deputies in riot gear and on horseback worked to disperse the crowd when some grew unruly, blocking the street and shaking some vehicles.

Mexico beat Croatia 3-1 earlier to move on to the World Cup's knockout round.
