After Penn State football’s unexpected defeat of Ohio State on Saturday night, fans took to downtown. What started as a celebration turned into a riot.
State College police Chief John Gardner said Tuesday that the cost of damage to public property is approaching $30,000 — up from an estimate of $18,000 on Sunday.
Penn State student Chris Landolfi started a GoFundMe page on Monday “to help repair State College.”
As of 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the page had raised $810 of its $18,000 goal and been shared 246 times.

Let’s show everyone that while Penn State knows how to have a good time, we’re still respectful of the town we live in.
“As Penn State now is a nationally ranked team, more and more eyes are looking on our university. Let’s show everyone that while Penn State knows how to have a good time, we’re still respectful of the town we live in,” Landolfi said on the page.
