BROCKPORT, N.Y. (AP) - Police in a western New York college town say they made several arrests after bars were shut down when they became overcrowded after a homecoming weekend football game.

Officials tell local media that they shut down several bars on Main Street in the village of Brockport early Sunday morning after crowds of students and alumni of Brockport State College started spilling into the street. Earlier Saturday, more than 9,000 fans watched St. John Fisher of Pittsford defeat Brockport in the annual Courage Bowl, 36-20.

Brockport police say they started shutting down bars before the 2 a.m. closing time because some streets had become impassable to traffic. Officers from more than a dozen law enforcement agencies were on the scene to control the crowds.

Police say they arrested at least six people.
