UA Athletics and TPD Don't Want You to Riot

Posted By on Fri, Mar 28, 2014 at 5:30 PM


Arizona Wildcats' win over San Diego State University Thursday night almost inspired a drunken celebration in the form of a good old-fashion riot. Fortunately, Tucson Police quickly mobilized and closed down University Boulevard and Euclid Road around 10 p.m. Here's a nice, blurry twitpic to give you a glimpse of last night's brief free-for-all. 

One UA student was arrested for disorderly conduct and no damage was done.

So, VP and Director of Athletics Director Greg Byrne, Chief of Police Roberto Villasenor and UA Chief of Police Brian A. Seastone made this hokey video —asking politely— to encourage you not to riot and celebrate the potential Wildcats win this Saturday responsibly.

Don't do anything stupid, Gato fans.

That's an order.
