TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) – Officers with helmets and batons didn't stick around long on 4th Avenue Saturday night.

More than a dozen officers blocked part of the road to traffic and, more importantly, to Wildcat fans spilling out of nearby businesses.

Andrew Camelot said he was on University Boulevard after the ‘Cats win over San Diego State earlier in the week when people took to the street for celebration. He anticipated Saturday to be worse.

"It's going to get crazy, maybe some people jumping on cars," he said.

But no such thing happened around 4th Avenue. Most of the officers were rerouted to University Boulevard area where crowds would not disperse.

Before that happened, Arizona fan Xavier Villa looked at the line of officers and asked if the officers' presence was necessary for a group of disheartened fans.

"We're not coming out here looking to break windows or smash cars," said Villa.

Though they're more than a decade old, previous problems with crowd control in 1997 and 2001 were still on the minds of some fans. But that's old history and not what today's U of A fans are about, according to Villa.

"It's a city pride thing," he said. "These people aren't going to come out here and destroy their city."
