Weak Riot in U-Conn
U-Conn Huskies won their third National Title on Monday night, U-Conn faithful decided to get riot-eous and flip a car. The only problem was they didn’t flip the car. I guess you can call it a mellow riot? Watch the video!

27 people were arrested in separate incident following the Championship. Read the excerpt, courtesy foxsports:
Some of the fans got a little too raucous. Police say fans caused minor property damage on campus and in Storrs. No serious injuries were reported.
Campus police arrested 24 revelers, and state police made three off-campus arrests. The arrests between 8 p.m. Monday and 4 a.m. Tuesday were mostly for vandalism, but others were accused of breach of peace, inciting a riot, criminal trespassing and interfering with a police officer. Of the 24 arrested on campus, 10 are UConn students. No one was held and all will be called to court this month.
”For the most part the celebrations were good natured,” UConn police Maj. Ronald Blicher said. ”A few people stepped out of line.”
Police said one car was flipped over and a couple of fires were started in dumpsters. A couch was set on fire and a car was overturned at an off-campus apartment complex. State police say a crowd of 200 or so had gathered, and some were throwing bottles at troopers. They used dogs to disperse the crowd.
