Jan. 31, 1999

Fans were so ecstatic over the Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl XXXIII win — the team’s second consecutive NFL championship — that they took to the streets in a violent display of affection, overtaking Denver’s Larimer Square. After a crowd of 1,000 people began smashing store windows, overturning cars and setting fires, police unleashed tear gas and more than 20 people were arrested.
