Maryland beats Duke, fans cause ruckus in College Park

USA TODAY Sports

Maryland fans caused some minor chaos after team's victory over Duke Saturday.

Celebrating the school's win over the No. 2 Duke Blue Devils Saturday, Maryland Terrapins fans became unruly in the streets after the game, resulting in a few arrests for disorderly conduct.

Yasmeen Abutaleb of The Diamondback, Maryland's student newspaper, has a rundown of police blotter items from the hours after the game ended. Among the lowlights - someone tossed a flaming roll of toilet paper into a crowd, a crowd broke down a light pole, resulting in live wires being exposed and several fires were started in trash cans. Students were also stopped while attempting to start a fire at a Jimmy John's.

One student defended starting fires in trash cans because trash cans are better than burning couches, I guess?

"It gives us something to burn and we have bad reputations of burning couches; this way we can burn something and do it basically to celebrate," the student told Abutaleb. "This is a huge win because it's the last time we're playing Duke at home, so it's something I'm going to remember for a really long time."
