Kentucky won may have March Madness, but the real madness was back home in Lexington.
For Kentucky fans, the best part of last night was the school winning its eighth national championship. For the rest of us, it was tuning into the Internet stream of the Lexington Police Scanner after the game to listen to the mayhem unfold. At one point, #LexingtonPoliceScanner was the No. 1 trending topic in the country on Twitter last night.
I grabbed some of the best lines and posted them here in chronological order. I offer no warranties on whatever else might be in these folks' Twitter timelines, FYI.
