Usually when a person or group of people are seen vandalizing public property, lighting fires in the streets and destroying cars, they’re upset at something. Apparently doing all those to ‘celebrate’ something is now a thing.

According to New Hampshire’s Union Leader, police arrested 15 people, 12 of which are students enrolled at the University of New Hampshire — on criminal mischief charges Wednesday for the destruction of three vehicles in downtown Durham. The crimes came in celebratory fashion after the New England Patriots came back and won Super Bowl LI in early February.

Durham police said that approximately 3,000 people gathered after the game clock hit zero to celebrate the Patriots’ improbable comeback to claim their fifth Super Bowl championship.

The 15 criminals could be seen on surveillance footage damaging the vehicles, which were declared total losses by their respective owners, which were parked on Main Street.

The following UNH students were arrested Wednesday on criminal mischief charges.
