Police: PSU rioters caused $190K in damages

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - December 21, 2011

Police Chief Tom King says much of the damage is tied to a TV news van that was tipped over by rioters.

Authorities have charged 38 people in connection with the riot. All but three are Penn State students.

The Patriot-News report says State College police have also logged about 725 hours of overtime related to the sex scandal that led to Paterno's firing.

The university Board of Trustees fired Paterno late Nov. 9, a few days after former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was charged with sexually abusing children. Sandusky has said he's innocent.
