TUCSON, Ariz. -- Things got way out of hand in Tuscon, Arizona Saturday night after the University of Arizona lost in overtime to Wisconsin in the NCAA tournament.

Unruly fans poured out of bars and started crowding the streets. Some of them were throwing things at police in riot gear who responded by firing pepper spray into the crowd.

One guy even stood right in front of officers while they pelted him over and over again with pellets.

That man and at least two other people were taken into custody while students in the crowd shouted "police brutality."
