Never Seen This Before: Soccer Fans Riot, Clash With Police (Video)

Completely going against character as it relates to the calm, subdued and orderly behavior which typifies the average group of soccer fans, a mob of Chilean soccer fans took to the street in an orgiastic display of wilding, rioting and outright mayhem. Who woulda thunk it, right?

The Guardian has the basic details:

More than 140 people were arrested after clashes between police and Universidad de Chile fans celebrating victory in the Clausura. Police tried to subdue supporters who tore down fencing, lobbed rocks and bottles, and attacked a police bus. ‘La U’, with 15 league titles, are now the country’s second most successful club after Colo Colo

Man, do those people know how to celebrate or what?
