After previous reports of pepper spray and police in riot gear, the student gatherings at Penn State have taken a turn for the worse. This photo, taken by Sports Illustrated's Jon Wertheim, shows what students have been up to.
There have also been reports of students toppling a light pole and police macing gatherers. ESPN's John Barr has been reporting live from the scene, and he's said he's "afraid someone's going to get trampled." Shortly after the above picture was circulated, CBS' Gregg Doyel, who has been in State College all week, revealed more damage.
Barr went on to say a fire truck has driven through the crowd, and he saw what appeared to be a flare or a cannister of some kind. Obviously this situation is nowhere near over, and we at SB Nation will continue to provide updates as to whatever happens.
