PITTSBURGH (AP) – University of Pittsburgh Chancellor Mark Nordenberg says students involved in vandalism, fire-setting and other crimes after the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ Super Bowl win will face discipline and could even be expelled.
City police say more than 80 people were arrested Sunday night as crowds threw bottles at police, set small fires, broke store windows and overturned cars. Much of the violence occurred in the Oakland neighborhood that hs home to Pitt’s main campus and many of the offenders appeared to be younger people.
Nordenberg says an unspecified number of Pitt students have already been charged by the campus judicial system and others likely will be as police review surveillance videos.
Nordenberg wants to “ensure that this type of disturbance is not repeated on any of our campuses ever again.”
