Police may seek arrests over Penn State celebration, damage

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Police in State College are weighing possible arrests after the celebration of Penn State's Big Ten championship caused minor property damage.

Lt. Bradley Smail on Sunday says the damage included broken streetlamps and signposts in the off-campus area dubbed Beaver Canyon.

Smail says his department used pepper spray but not tear gas to disburse the crowd sometime before 3 a.m.

Police say a large crowd of students and fans gathered as the team rallied late Saturday for a comeback win over Wisconsin.

Penn State is now heading to the Rose Bowl on Jan. 2. The team will face the University of Southern California.
