(State College, Pa.) - Several thousand people took to the streets and the balconies early Saturday following Penn State's 12-point loss to Temple in the NCAA tournament.
As cans and bottles rained down, riot gear-clad police tried to disperse the unruly crowd in a scene reminiscent of last summer's arts festival disturbance.
As revelers threw small firecrackers, police used pepper spray in their attempt to keep order. At least four people were visibly sickened after apparently being sprayed in the face. Emergency medical personnel were called around 1 a.m. for a report of a woman who needed stitches.
