DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — University of Dayton students are becoming known for their rowdy street parties celebrating the latest basketball win — and Thursday night was no exception.

After hundreds of students showed up at UD Arena to watch the Flyers beat Stanford on big screens, thousands thronged the streets around campus to celebrate the team's first NCAA Elite Eight appearance in three decades.

Police said some bottles and cans were thrown at police in riot gear trying to disperse the dancing and screaming crowds. Dayton police reported 28 arrests on campus.

The Dayton Daily News reports that emergency crews responded to a roof collapse on a porch near campus, but there were no details about injuries.

The Flyers will play the University of Florida in the next round of the tournament on Saturday.

$1 million prize winner tells Ohio judge he's broke

CINCINNATI (AP) — Within months of being awarded a $1 million casino prize, a Cincinnati man got busted and went broke.

Fifty-two-year-old Kevin Lewis got the money through a Horseshoe Casino giveaway last summer. But The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1l5BcAv ) reports that Lewis told Hamilton County court officials the money was gone, much of it to paying bills for other people.

Common Pleas Judge Jerome Metz Jr. on Wednesday sentenced Lewis to three years of probation for Lewis' guilty pleas to drug possession and trafficking. He was arrested in December on charges of trafficking marijuana and pain pills. He could have been imprisoned for more than five years.

His attorney told the judge Lewis was left disabled and hooked on painkillers after 2012 hip surgery. But the judge noted Lewis had earlier drug convictions.

DIAMOND, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a man has died after being burned by a space heater while painting a bathroom at a northeast Ohio park.

The Summit County medical examiner's office said 49-year-old Jon Blystone of Youngstown was painting a bathroom Wednesday at Green Acres Lake Park in Diamond, between Akron and Youngstown.

He was using a space heater to keep warm, and was seen emerging from the bathroom "engulfed in flames," according to the medical examiner.

He was taken to an Akron hospital where he died early Thursday.

Officials: Dogs killed inhumanely at Ohio shelter

GALLIPOLIS, Ohio (AP) — Three animal shelter employees in southeast Ohio have pleaded not guilty to charges of inhumanely killing dogs.

The Gallia County dog warden, his assistant and a former warden are accused of killing dogs by injecting a drug directly into their hearts without using a sedative, which veterinarians say causes extreme pain before death.

The misdemeanor animal cruelty charges were filed after necropsies done at Ohio State University's veterinary hospital showed that several of the dogs recovered from the county animal shelter were inhumanely euthanized.

Dog warden Paul Simmer, his assistant, Jason Harris, and former warden Jean Daniels pleaded not guilty to the charges in Gallipolis Municipal Court on Tuesday. They are due back in court next week.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A dozen more Ohio State University students and one staff member have been added to the list of cases in a central Ohio mumps outbreak.

Public health agencies for Columbus and surrounding Franklin County on Wednesday reported 82 total cases of the contagious viral illness.

Sixty-nine of those are linked to Ohio State. Fifty-three involve Ohio State students.

The people infected range in age from 4 to 55. The cases span from early January to this week.

Health officials urge residents to make sure they have properly received two doses of the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine, or MMR.

Mumps often starts with fever, fatigue and body aches. Those infected are urged to stay home for a few days, cover their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing and frequently wash their hands.
