Fifteen people were jailed after campus disappointment at Purdue University's loss in the NCAA tournament fueled a noisy disturbance. Up to 500 people took to the streets in West Lafayette, Ind., late Saturday after the Boilermakers' 64-60 loss to Wisconsin in the West Regional final, overturning trash containers and lighting several bonfires. Officers in riot gear used tear gas to disperse the crowd. Indiana State Police said the 15 people taken to jail appeared to be students.
