EAST LANSING, Mich. — Police made several arrests in Cedar Village apartment complex and along Grand River Avenue, late Saturday night. East Lansing police have yet to release information about those arrests. However, the detainments occurred after Michigan State University’s men’s basketball team lost to Texas Tech in the Final Four.

Fans, including hundreds of students, gathered on the streets shortly after the end of the game. The crowd moved from Cedar Village onto Grand River Avenue and blocked traffic. Law enforcement, who showed a heavy presence throughout the day, blocked the road on both sides of the crowd before dispersing it.

Several mid-Michigan law enforcement agencies patrolled East Lansing Saturday and into early Sunday morning.

East Lansing police are expected to release more information about the arrests and various disturbances in the coming days.
