LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – After the University of Kentucky’s win against Louisville in the Sweet 16 last night, wild crowds of students took to the streets of Lexington to celebrate the win.

Lexington Police say the party-goers set fireworks off from rooftops, tore stop signs from the pavement and set as many as 25 fires to couches, mattresses and flags.

No one was seriously hurt but one person was arrested for alcohol intoxication and another for theft.

Here in Louisville, Metro Police says there weren’t any issues at the University of Louisville’s campus, Waterfront Park or 4th Street Live but it did make 8 arrests for charges including wanton endangerment and drug possession.
