HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) - Police say a student celebration turned destructive at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut after a victory by the men’s hockey team in the NCAA playoffs.

Police who responded to the campus Thursday evening said 800 students had gathered and several were climbing on trees and breaking tree limbs.

Hamden police arrested two students and charged them with first-degree criminal mischief. Both are due in Meriden Superior Court later this month.

The students were celebrating a win over Boston College in the Frozen Four.

Quinnipiac plays North Dakota on Saturday for the national championship.
