Thirty-one people were arrested in Lexington, Kentucky, on Saturday night after the Kentucky Wildcats lost to the Wisconsin Badgers in the NCAA Final Four in Indianapolis.
Police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said that most of the arrests were for public intoxication and disorderly conduct, the Associated Press reported.
The department deployed police officers in riot gear after the Wildcats were defeated 71-64.
Approximately 1,500 people swarmed the streets near the University of Kentucky campus after the game.
The officers mostly just kept an eye on the crowd, but did use pepper balls to break up a fight, Roberts said.
