EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Police in East Lansing arrested at least five people and received nearly 350 calls after Michigan State University’s weekend victory over the University of Michigan.

Police received 349 calls for service, issued 20 citations and made five arrests.

City officials say property damage included a vehicle overturned and destroyed in an alley.

There were also multiple couch fires that started minutes after Michigan State’s 37-33 victory over Michigan on Saturday.

East Lansing city manager George Lahanas says the “unlawful behaviors” were a dangerous and unnecessary overburden on critical emergency services.
