Dayton Police Prep for Thursday Celebrations, University Not Commenting
DAYTON -- With the possibility of the University of Dayton Flyers advancing again on Thursday night, we worked to find out the safety plan and how police and the university are preparing.
"I hadn't seen that many people in one block in my entire four years here. It was really exciting to be a part of," said Ale Zozos, a UD senior, describing Saturday night's gathering after the Flyers beat Syracuse.
"Streets are filled, people yelling ... jumping up and down, just pandemonium, unbelievable," said Matt DiCicco, a sophomore.
The celebrations on Saturday began at the buzzer. Eventually, more than 2,000 students packed Kiefaber Street. Police stood by in riot gear.
"I actually think we handled it really well. There was a point where some people were jumping on cars, and people were like, 'Get down, you're going to ruin it,' and people were starting to throw cans and it's like, 'Come on dude you're going to mess it up for everyone'," Zozos said.
Just after 12:30 in the morning, when bottles started to fly at police, officers cleared the street, forcing students inside. Four UD students were arrested, along with Matthew McCawley, 22, who is charged with disorderly conduct.
"Why would you have to do that, you know? It kind of like put a damper on the night, but other than that it was an awesome night," DiCicco said.
Consider the party they had late Saturday night into Sunday morning. Now consider if they pull off a win Thursday and make it into the Elite 8. We tried to talk with university officials, but they would not comment on any sort of safety plan. We did catch up with Dayton police, who played a major role in securing the area this weekend.
"We're going to be there to assist UD. The response is going to be a little bit quicker. We ask the students to be responsible, to think about what they're doing," said Col. Bob Chabali, assistant chief of Dayton Police.
Students say they do plan on partying.
"If they win, it will be that times like five. which will be unbelievable to think about," said DiCicco, referring to Saturday's celebration.
"If we win, it's going to be, it's going to be crazy," added Zozos.
But Dayton Police say crazy just won't be allowed.
"The students should probably reconsider if they're going to duplicate the events of Saturday," Chabali warned.
Saturday night may have cost you, the taxpayer. Besides UD and Dayton Police, officers from 11 other departments responded. Dayton Police had 40 officers on overtime alone.
