Going overboard in Ohio
COLUMBUS, OH - Ohio State football fans took to the streets after their team's championship victory early Tuesday, yelling and screaming in delight, setting nearly 90 fires and tearing down an Ohio Stadium goal post.
Police made a handful of arrests after using tear gas and pepper spray to disperse crowds of Ohio State University students and other fans following the Buckeyes' win.
The 89 fires reported to the Columbus Fire Department involved trash bins, dumpsters and couches. The fire department said it responded to three reports of people with injuries in the campus area.
Some police officers used pepper spray to clear an estimated 5,000 revelers from the streets, while canisters of tear gas also were deployed. The crowds began going home within about two hours.
