Police in riot gear dispersed about 2,000 Penn State students who took to the streets after the ouster of football coach Joe Paterno. Crowds toppled a television news van and at least one photographer was pelted with a rock.
Crazed Penn State students were confronted by police in riot gear Wednesday night after the students took to the streets to protest the firing of football coach Joe Paterno.
The crowds tipped over a CBS News central Pennsylvania affiliate (WTAJ). Apparently there were no injuries during the tipping of the van, but one news photographer was injured when he was hit by a rock.
Paterno announced on Wednesday that he planned to retire after the season and said he felt remorse for not having done more after he learned of the sex assault allegations.
Paterno and university President Graham Spanier were fired by the State College Board of Trustees after news of their failure to properly manage of sex abuse allegations against a former assistant football coach, Jerry Sandusky. The assistant coach maintains he is innocent while he faces 40 criminal counts related to the molestation of eight young boys between 1994 and 2009.CLEAR SKIES?  Weather Data for Thursday, November 10th, 2011
