Eight arrested after Super Bowl in Southwest

Michael King

Eight individuals were arrested last night during a post-Super Bowl gathering in the University of Massachusetts Southwest Residential area.

The crowd – consisting of approximately 300 students, according to Ed Blaguszewski, director of the Office of News and Information at UMass – was “largely subdued and peaceful.”

“Compared to other events, it was a pretty small crowd,” he said.

Students gathered following the New York Giants’ 17-14 win over the hometown Patriots at about 10:05 p.m. At approximately 10:40 p.m., University police read a dispersal order, which was followed by the majority of the crowd, said Blaguszewski.

Police officers from the State Police, Amherst Police, and University Police departments arrived on scene before the crowd formed.

At one point, Patriots fans surrounded and threw ice off the ground at a group of singled-out Giants fans. Fights broke out between fans of either teams.

One student was reportedly taken to Cooley Dickinson Hospital for injuries sustained during a fight.

Police arrested all eight individuals and charged them with disorderly conduct. Police are also filing four charges of resisting arrest, one charge of assault and battery of a police officer, and one charge of interfering with a police horse.

There was no reported property damage.

UMPD was unavailable for comment.
