TUCSON, Arizona - US police shot pepper spray at several hundred fans who took to the streets and threw beer bottles after the University of Arizona basketball team's overtime loss to Wisconsin in the NCAA college basketball tournament.

Fifteen people were arrested over the fracas that lasted more than an hour on Sunday, but no one was injured.

"The majority of the crowd did not respond to the dispersal order and began throwing beer bottles, beer cans and firecrackers at the officers," Tucson police sergeant Pete Dugan said.

He said crowds leaving bars and restaurants near the campus filled University Boulevard after the game.

They wouldn't leave despite urging through a public address system and social media declaring their gathering an unlawful assembly.
