On Monday night, the University of Connecticut Huskies won the NCAA championship after a stunning season. After the big win, students and fans on Uconn’s campus in Storrs, Connecticut, celebrated the way they customarily do: a giant outdoor party and riot.
After the 2004 championship, police arrested at least 35 people after fans lit dozens of fires across campus. Now, 10 years later, the Los Angeles Times reported that, once again, police arrested at least 35 people.
Here are the wildest videos emerging from the massive celebration that rocked UConn’s campus:
