Lexington Burning

Police arrested dozens and medical personnel treated dozens of others for injuries during last night’s rowdy celebration of the Kentucky Wildcats’ national championship victory in the men’s NCAA basketball tournament.

As events unfolded during the night, the Twittersphere was treated to a live scanner feed of the Lexington Police Department. What followed were some of the most fearfully entertaining hours of live police radio and Twitter users’ updates on the #LexingtonPoliceScanner hashtag.

What follows are some of the images posted to the feed, along with a bonus video at the end.

As of sunrise today, police and fire crews were still taking reports of couches and other household objects on fire.
