Riot police used pepper spray in small amounts for crowd control as thousands of rowdy fans swarmed into the streets near the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, overturning cars and lighting couches ablaze after a victory over cross-state rival Louisville in a Final Four matchup.
"We've come at this with a significant show of force," Ms. Straub said.
Ms. Straub said the crowds began to disperse by about 11 p.m., nearly three hours after the game ended, but she said at no point had things "gotten out of control."
