No stranger to student riots, the University of Maryland got a little too rowdy one Wednesday night in 2010 after the Terrapins defeated fourth-ranked Duke in college basketball. Around 1,500 poured onto a main road near the school's campus following the 7-point win; television footage captured mounted officers dispersing the crowd in riot gear after some students reportedly threw snowballs and ice at police. Arrests totaled 28 that night, and resulted mostly from destruction of property and petty arson: people setting trees and trash cans ablaze for no reason whatsoever.
