Quinnipiac Students Get Rowdy After Hockey Team Beats BC

Quinnipiac Students Get Rowdy (Published Thursday, April 7, 2016)

Two people were arrested on Thursday night after Quinnipiac students got rowdy on campus after the men's hockey team won its game.

A video from the school's news channel shows people, presumably students, on Quinnipiac's campus in Hamden celebrating the win that will lead the men's team to the national championship this Saturday.

Police said almost 800 students had gathered on Bob Cat Way at 275 Mount Carmel Avenue. 

The video appears to show a couple of people jumping on a tree and bringing it down while a crowd cheers on.  Police said students began breaking down the tree limbs.

Hamden Police said two students were arrested as a result of this incident but did not specify what charges the two individuals face.

Maxime Fiesen, 18, and Robert S. Amonica, 18, were charged with first degree criminal mischief, Hamden Police said. 

Police said they had scheduled a few extra patrols for Thursday and expect of have more after Saturday's NCAA hockey national championship game. 

Quinnipiac men's hockey held off Boston College 3-2 on Thursday night to reach the NCAA hockey championship game for the second time in four seasons.

After the game, the 'Frozen Four' Snapchat story- that has since disappeared- showed students climbing on trees and running across the campus.
