Penn State Rioters Destroy WTAJ News Van

Penn State students unleashed their anger over the firing of Joe Paterno on a WTAJ news van Wednesday night, at the edge of the university’s campus.

The van was parked at an intersection where students had congregated to protest Paterno’s dismissal, while a WTAJ news crew covered the upheaval.  Amid chants of “flip it, flip it,” a group of protestors tipped the van on its side, breaking windows and equipment.

According to WTAJ, police quickly moved in after the van was tipped over and disbursed the crowd using pepper spray. No WTAJ staffers were injured in the incident.

WTAJ video of the destruction is available here.
