Police release photos of PSU riot suspects

    Police have released the photos of the suspects seen rioting last week on College Avenue in Happy Valley after football coach Joe Paterno was fired.

    Authorities had to use pepper gas at points to control the crowd that formed to protest the iconic coache’s firing in the wake of a child sexual abuse scandal. Fox29 has photos of the suspects. Tips can be made to State College Police at 814-234-7150 or online.
