  • Description

    Arizona police and youths fought a running battle in the streets of Tucson on Thursday night (January 21) and as a result more than 50 people were arrested.

    At the height of the four-hour disturbances, youths were tossing rocks, bottles and other matter at lawmen and the officers battled back with tear gas and clubs.

    Police said the trouble began after a group on the University of Arizona refused to disband, and 19 persons were arrested. Then a number of young people marched four blocks to a busy intersection shattering windows and breaking car windows.

    More than 400 city police, county deputies and state patrolmen were called in to tangle with the group, estimated at about 400.

    The arrests were made on various charges, ranging from trespassing to a minor's possession of tobacco.
