Penn State Riot: Video Of Students Overturning News Van

Thousands of students gathered in downtown State College, Pennsylvania on Wednesday night after hearing the news that Joe Paterno had been fired. As those get togethers often do, it became sort of unruly. The biggest victim of the protest was a news van which was flipped and smashed by a group of students. Here is the video of that van being flipped.

There is no word yet on how many, if any, arrests were made during the riots, or the amount of damage that was done to the downtown area or anyone occupying it. We do know that there was a pepper spray like substance, possibly mace, that was used to help disperse the crowd. It seems like this van got the worst of it, however.

We'll have more information on these riots as soon as it comes out, but for more on Penn State football please check out Black Shoe Diaries.
