Briefly: St. Patrick’s Day mob rampages through London, Ontario
LONDON, Ontario — Revelers set a large street fire and battled police and fire crews who tried to intervene after St. Patrick’s Day celebrations got out of hand in this town in Ontario province, authorities said Sunday.
Police said at least 11 people had been arrested and more arrests were expected as authorities review video of the disturbance and witness statements.
At least 17 police vehicles were damaged. No serious injuries were reported.
The trouble began Saturday night, when a crowd of about 1,000 people, many of whom had been drinking, celebrated in the streets in a district near Fanshawe College that is heavily populated by students and has been the site of previous smaller disturbances.
District Fire Chief Jim Holmes said fire crews were called to the scene after revelers flipped over a TV news van and set it on fire, but the crews were driven back when some people in the crowd pelted them with rocks and bottles.

He said they ignored a police command to stop, fearing the officers might be robbers.
