Fifteen people were arrested in Tucson Saturday after Arizona lost to Wisconsin in this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
Police used pepper shot and tear gas to disperse crowds that had gathered on University Boulevard. Some in that crowd threw beer cans and other things at Tucson Police. That’s never a good idea. All was calm again by late Saturday night.
Riots aren’t new to sports. Here’s a list of five of the worst to take place.

After the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup finals to the Boston Bruins, fans began to throw bottles at the outdoor large screens they were watching the game on. From there, it turned into a full-fledged riot. Buildings were damaged, stores were looted and destroyed. Close to 150 people were injured and almost 100 were arrested.
