UConn students celebrate national title

Some UConn fans got a little too raucous celebrating the Huskies national championship.

Police say fans caused minor property damage on campus and in Storrs, and several have been arrested.

Campus police say 12 people were arrested there, five of them students. UConn police Maj. Ronald Blicher said early Tuesday that most of the charges involve vandalism and criminal mischief.

He says one car was flipped over and a couple of fires were started in Dumpsters.

A couch was set on fire and a car was overturned at an off-campus apartment complex. State police say a crowd of 200 or so had gathered, and some were throwing bottles at troopers. They were using dogs to disperse the crowd.

UConn beat Butler 53-41 to win its third national title.
