Police: 31 arrested following Kentucky’s Final Four loss

Lexington Police say 31 people have been arrested near the University of Kentucky campus following the Wildcats’ 71-64 Final Four loss to the Wisconsin Badgers.
    
Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts says following the game Saturday night about 1,500 fans spilled into a State Street neighborhood adjacent to the university’s Lexington campus. She said police dressed in tactical gear allowed fans to mingle but removed anyone who became disobedient. Roberts said pepper balls were used to break up one fight.
    
Roberts says those arrested will face charges including public intoxication and disorderly conduct, and will be arraigned as early as Monday.
    
Street sweepers were used to disperse the crowd about 2:15 a.m.
    
Roberts says police are “thankful no one was seriously injured and that there was no major destruction of property.”
