Police Arrest 15 At UMass After Red Sox Win

AMHERST, Mass. – Officials at the University of Massachusetts’ flagship campus in Amherst say 15 people – 14 of them students – were arrested in the aftermath of the Boston Red Sox’ victory in the World Series. The university said in a statement that police responded to a disturbance after thousands of students gathered in the southwest residential area of the campus after the game had ended. No injuries were reported. Fourteen people were charged with failing to disperse and one with being disorderly. Two of those arrested were also facing charges of assault and battery on a police officer.  The university said it provided food to nearly 3,000 students watching the game and that the atmosphere was calm until after Boston’s 6–1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
