ATHENS, Ohio (AP) -- Police arrested 15 people this weekend after Ohio University's win over the University of Pittsburgh sparked a string of fires and rowdy parties.
Burning furniture blocked an intersection Friday night as traffic backed up from the game. Early Saturday morning, officers doused a burning couch and found a garbage can on fire, Lt. Roger Deardorff said.
Party-goers threw beer cans at officers as they tried to subdue a crowd and arrest a suspect Saturday night. A mounted officer also was taken to the hospital with an arm injury after his horse fell on top of him while he was chasing a suspect.
Charges for those arrested included disorderly conduct, underage possession of alcohol, open container, resisting arrest, criminal mischief and obstructing official business.
