Students Take Selfies During Tucson Riot

After the Arizona Wildcat’s Elite Eight loss to the Wisconsin Badgers, students assembled in the middle of University Boulevard, only to be met by a platoon of Tucson Police Officers in full riot gear. 

Students gathered beer cans, smoke bombs, and sparklers and were throwing them in the direction of the riot police who were guarding University. 

Some students on the outskirts of the action had a different approach to the chaos that broke out on University Boulevard, choosing to take “riot selfies.”

When the smoke cleared, literally, crowds dispersed, leaving TPD officers guarding the intersection of Tyndall and University.

TPD officers detained 15 people during the riot.
