There was a lot of heartbreak in Lawrence, Kansas, Saturday night, as the Villanova Wildcats upset the No. 1 overall seed Kansas Jayhawks in the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament in Louisville, Kentucky.
And unfortunately for Jayhawks fans, there was nothing the Lawrence Police Department could do about it—because the "crime" was committed outside of its jurisdiction.

Sorry, we can't investigate Villanova ripping your heart out of your chest, the crime occurred outside our jurisdiction. #RCJH3/27/2016, 3:17:37 AM
Had the game been played at Allen Fieldhouse, perhaps the police would have been able to step in to prevent the loss from happening. The LPD was instead left powerless, however.
Sorry, Kansas fans.
