DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - University of New Hampshire officials and police are happy that up to 3,000 people swarmed downtown Durham without problems after the New England Patriots won the Super Bowl.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1LDwGXK) Police Deputy Chief Rene Kelly called Sunday night’s event an excited celebration. Students ran to high-five police and thank them for their service.

Authorities said that as of 11 p.m., there had been no arrests.

In the fall of 2013, a celebration of the Red Sox clinching the World Series championship over the St. Louis Cardinals turned violent on campus. Police used pepper spray and pepper balls to break up a crowd of several hundred students, some of whom had thrown glass bottles at officers.
