Police subdue post-Super Bowl riot at UMass Amherst
Students involved in a disturbance that attracted 1,500 on the UMass Amherst campus after the Patriots’ Super Bowl loss face possible school sanctions as well as criminal charges. UMass Police arrrested 13 students and one non-student after the crowd became unfuly and fights broke out. They will face charges of failure to disperse, disorderly conduct, and, in some cases, rioting. They are to be arraigned today in Eastern Hampshire District Court.
