6 arrested in post-Super Bowl riot at UMass”

According to a statement sent to 22News by the UMass Office of News and Media Relations, people gathered on the Southwest plaza shortly after the game ended at 10:07pm.

The crowd control measures started when campus police reported fights were breaking out and people were setting off firecrackers and smoke bombs. The university's statement said police ultimately used PepperBall to clear the disturbance and the area was cleared by 11:30pm.

Campus police are "proceeding with criminal charges and the university will also initiate a prompt review of the matter under its student conduct process as appropriate", the university said in a statement.

One video tweeted by The Massachusetts Daily Collegian, the school's independent student newspaper, showed dozens of chanting students gathered around what appeared to be a fire as officers tried to disperse the crowd.

The first of seven students charged in connection with the melee following the Patriots Super Bowl loss Sunday was arraigned Monday.

"Six people were arrested and 12 others transported to area hospitals for injuries including lacerations, alcohol intoxication and head injuries".

According to the university, six people were arrested.
