Police in Kentucky say they have arrested several dozen people following the Wildcats' 67-59 win over Kansas in the NCAA championship game.

Fans filled the streets near the university's Lexington campus within minutes of the game's conclusion Monday night. They jumped up and down, screamed, sprayed beer and waved Kentucky flags.

Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said late Monday that officers were "seeing fires being lit and things of that nature." She added that people had set couches and at least one car on fire.

"We're SURROUNDED," said one exasperated police officer on Lexington, KY's police scanner feed.

If you're up late tonight, listen to this.
