Another NBA Championship. You would think L.A. fans would not have to act up like this anymore
Celebrations of the Los Angeles Lakers NBA championship turned rowdy in parts of the city last night, and police say at least 20 people were arrested. Most of the arrests were for public intoxication, while others were for vandalism and inciting a riot after revelers threw rocks and bottles at police, set fires and jumped on vehicles. Check out this video from the Associated Press.
City firefighters responded to 37 incidents in neighborhoods within a half-mile radius of Staples Center in the three hours after the game. Eight people were taken by ambulance to hospitals.
