Thousands gather at Women’s March on Washington D.C.

UD says 5 arrested in post-game celebration


After earning a berth to the Sweet 16 for the first time in 30 years, University of Dayton students and fans celebrated in the streets late Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

Debris littered the streets around campus and workers were busy cleaning up the aftermath Sunday morning.

Police dressed in full riot gear lined up on Kiefaber Street and enforced an order to clear the streets at 1 a.m., according to a University of Dayton release.

According to UD's tally, five people were arrested, all but one were students, and there were at least five minor injuries with one person taken to the hospital.

Dayton police arrested two for disorderly conduct. Police cited profane language being used by a 20-year-old who used a fake identity to get into a bar on Brown Street, according to arrest reports.

Police said the officers on Kiefaber were met with a large crowd drinking and throwing glass bottles.

Once the order to clear the street was given and police formed a "skirmish line," most people dispersed, according to one of the arrest reports.

In addition, there were three fires in the streets that were quickly extinguished and several vehicles were damaged, according to the university.

In an effort to "calm the gathering," UD President Daniel Curran addressed the crowd using a bullhorn. Students had hoisted Curran and carried him briefly above their shoulders through the crowd.

"The students were jubilant and came together to enjoy this moment," Curran said in a prepared statement Sunday. "We don't encourage or condone the behavior that went beyond the limits of a responsible celebration and we will continue to educate and encourage students to make choices that promote safety throughout the community."
