Video: Riot police tame Louisville crowd after NCAA win

Police were forced to use tear gas after several scuffles broke out and an officer was attacked

WPTV

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville's celebration following the Cardinals' 82-76 victory over Michigan for the NCAA championship eventually required riot police and an armored carrier to quell a disturbance early Tuesday.

Standing ready were a combination of Louisville and campus police and sheriff's deputies, prepared for large crowds and celebrations that have been commonplace since the Cardinals reached the Final Four and then beat Wichita State in Saturday night's semifinal. Police arrested 10 people on charges of drunken and disorderly conduct. Several were injured, two on falls and one with a cut foot.

Riot police were called in after an officer was attacked. Students quickly fled the area but several scuffles ensued and bottles were thrown, forcing police to use tear gas. The armored carrier was brought in and order was restored before 2:30 a.m.
