Chaos erupted in the streets of Lexington the night the Wildcats beat in-state rival Louisville in the Final Four to advance to the NCAA Men's basketball championship. Thousands of rowdy fans swarmed the streets surrounding campus following the win, leading officers in riot gear to move in as student set couches and cars ablaze, hurling beers cans into large crowds. Reports of cars being flipped were abundant, and around 50 nuisance fires were reported. Approximately 10 arrests were made, and officers used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.
