Police ‘Ready For Anything’ Tonight In Dinkytown Following Hockey Title Game
A massive police presence is expected this evening in Dinkytown to deter and deal with possible unruly Gopher fans spilling into the streets following tonight’s NCAA Men’s Hockey championship. Ten fans were arrested Thursday night following Minnesota’s semi-final win over North Dakota.
On Thursday police showed restraint, as some in the crowd that gathered climbed light poles, threw bottles, and jumped on top of police cars resulting in the handful of arrests.
Tonight, police will likely be less inclined to be as patient. Both law enforcement and University officials warn that similar actions tonight will be met with ‘zero tolerance,’ and that anyone involved in a similar incident will be subject to arrest.
Go Gophers! (And what’s wrong with people?)
