Rumors and Rants:
Needless to say, Louisville fans were pretty excited when their college basketball team won the national championship Monday night. After the Cardinals bested the Michigan Wolverines 82-76 in a phenomenal game, Louisville students took to the streets to celebrate. And police quickly took to the streets to disperse the crowd. Campus police, working with Louisville police used tear gas and an armored car early Tuesday morning to “calm disturbances” that erupted during the celebrations. There were just 10 reported arrests and three injuries in the aftermath of the revelry. As the celebration was dying down things reportedly got out of hand near Cardinal Boulevard and Third Street. An officer was attacked and riot police were called in as a result. As students fled the area, bottles were thrown and the police were forced to use tear gas.
