After Arizona was knocked out of the 2014 NCAA tournament by Wisconsin in the Elite Eight on Saturday, the Tuscon campus turned into a hostile environment.

Riot police were called onto the scene, which created incredible pictures and video. The police shot pepper balls and pepper canisters into the crowd to try to take control.

Some people, including the man in the Vine above, tried to stand tall against authority. Although it may have sounded like a good idea at the time, the results are not so good.

Not only was the man above arrested, but he also has some wounds that will allow him to remember the incident for quite some time:

Ouch.
