Riot police were involved during Kentucky's celebration win over cross-state rivals, Louisville, in which two cars were flipped and then torched.
According to the Courier-Journal:
College antics in alcohol-fueled celebrations of UK’s Final Four victory quickly escalated, as young people set couches and two cars ablaze and hurled beer cans into clusters of party-goers.
Firefighters responded to about 50 nuisance fires, mostly couches set afire on purpose, according to Battalion Chief Ed Davis of the Lexington Fire Department. Ten people were injured, he said.
Two car fires were set on State Street.
Below are several videos that were captured, to include the Kentucky Wildcat's victory over the Louisville Cardinals on Saturday night.
Similar celebratory acts also occurred last year after Kentucky's victory over the University of North Carolina in the NCAA tournament to advance and play UCONN in the Final Four.
