    Facing another night of raucous Gophers hockey fans, Minneapolis police turned out in force to clear the streets of Dinkytown after the NCAA title game Saturday night, making arrests and firing paint pellets at a sometimes unruly crowd.

    After the Gophers lost 7-4 to Union College, dozens of disappointed fans tried to take over the intersection of 4th Street and 14th Avenue SE., the scene of a rowdy celebration Thursday.

    Police, on horses, on bikes and in riot gear, pushed scores of people down 14th Avenue in an attempt to empty the streets, pushing the students elsewhere.

    At least one man who mooned officers was knocked to the ground, handcuffed and taken away. Some of the officers fired the paint pellets in an effort to mark those causing trouble.
