The late-night celebration in the streets of Louisville was relatively under control after last night’s big national championship game win over Michigan.
According to WHAS-TV reporter Joe Arnold, 23 people were arrested, there were 70 reports of shots fired, and 6 couches were burned. Police used “pepper balls” to disperse a crowd at 1:45 a.m., but other than that it was a much less violent celebration than we’ve seen in past years.
14 of the 23 arrests were for alcohol intoxication/disorderly conduct. One person tried to steal a moped, WHAS-TV reports.
