Kentucky Students Riot

Celebrations went bad in Lexington, as students from the University of Kentucky rioted Monday night after their basketball team captured the NCAA championship for the first time in a decade. Police said at least one man was wounded by gunfire, at least 50 small fires were set, and dozens were arrested as thousands of people took to the streets after Kentucky’s win. Police in riot gear were already in place by the time the game ended—especially after more than a dozen students were arrested Saturday following Kentucky’s ascension into the championship game.
