LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Kentucky fans who swarmed the field after the Wildcats upset then-No. 1 LSU have had trespassing charges against them dismissed.
University spokesman Jay Blanton said school officials expressed their desire not to go forward with the cases, and Fayette County prosecutors dropped the charges this week.
Several people were charged after jumping down and onto the Commonwealth Stadium field to celebrate after the Oct. 13 triple-overtime game. It was the first time since 1964 that the Wildcats had beaten a top-ranked team.
Blanton said Thursday night that since there was no injury or property damage in the celebration, the university had no interest in pursuing charges.
The university was fined $50,000 for violating a Southeastern Conference prohibition of fans on the field. It was the team's third violation, with earlier fines of $5,000 after Kentucky beat Georgia last season and $25,000 after the Wildcats defeated Louisville this season.
