There is a basketball game in Arizona, USA. The home team loses. A team from Wisconsin beats the home team.

The fans of the home team go to the streets. Police say that they throw bottles at policemen. Someone films the incident. The film shows a student. Police shoot smoke bombs at him. Then the police fight him. The student falls on the ground.

Police arrest fifteen people. Five people are a little bit hurt.

Difficult words: beat (be better than somebody in a game), incident (situation), arrest (take to a police station).
