EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -Authorities have reported 12 fires and 21 arrests in the city that's home to Michigan State University after its basketball team lost the national championship.
The East Lansing Police Department said Tuesday that about 1,700 people gathered Monday night at the Cedar Village apartment complex near campus. The crowd dwindled and dispersed early Tuesday amid cold temperatures and light snow.
Police say 230 officers from several area departments assisted to deal with crowds. They arrested people on various charges, including four for attempted arson. Fires included a mattress and couch that were set ablaze.
Messages were left Tuesday for a Detroit police spokesman seeking detail on police efforts in Detroit, where the game against North Carolina was played.
