    Police in Ohio used pepper spray and tear gas against hundreds of Ohio State football fans.

    MOSCOW, January 13 (Sputnik) – Police in Ohio used pepper spray and tear gas against hundreds of Ohio State football fans celebrating the school's national championship win early Tuesday morning.

    Hundreds of people were celebrating in the streets before police and SWAT team members, some wearing gas masks or mounted on horses, dispersed a crowd of jubilant fans on North High Street near campus, as well as near Ohio Stadium, reports Cleveland Times.

    The police reported several dumpster fires in the city, and added that it was unclear if anyone had been arrested.

    One person was reported to have been transported to the hospital, though most people on campus seemed to be celebrating without major problems as reported by Columbus Dispatch.
