MADISON (WITI) -- Wisconsin Badgers fans poured on to Madison's State St. late Saturday, disappointed their team was not able to pull off a Final Four victory.

Most fans watched the game against Kentucky with friends and celebrated a season of achievement -- leaving peacefully in a stream of red and white.

But as alcohol mixed with adrenaline, some took their frustration and anger into and above the crowd, climbing trees and street signs.

Law enforcement was prepared for anything that might ensue. While it was clear some Badgers fans were being taken into custody, Madison police have not yet released numbers on how many were arrested or cited Saturday.

    Pride is awarded for a championship, not a loss. Sorry you have disgraced us all, and are all banished to Siberia..
