New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

14 Arrested at UMass-Amherst After Patriots Super Bowl Loss

A spokesman for the University of Massachusetts in Amherst says 14 people have been arrested after police in riot gear were forced to disperse hundreds of students when the Patriots lost the Super Bowl.

No one was badly hurt and no property damage was reported.

Spokesman Ed Blaguszewski says police decided to issue a dispersal order when the crowd grew to about 1,500 people in the main residential area of campus.

A student says the crowd was chanting “U.S.A., U.S.A.” and throwing beer cans.

Thirteen of those arrested were students. Blaguszewski says they are being referred to the dean of students for possible disciplinary action.
