MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Five men accused of rioting after the Minnesota Gophers' NCAA hockey championship win were charged Tuesday with misdemeanors.
The men, none of whom were listed in the university's student directory, have been released from the Hennepin County jail.
The Minneapolis city attorney's office charged four of the men with gross misdemeanor crimes ranging from third-degree riot and obstruction of legal process to fourth-degree assault on a police officer. The fifth man was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.
Seventeen other men were charged with disorderly conduct after being booked Sunday at the Hennepin County jail. A 17-year-old Minneapolis boy also was charged with disorderly conduct in the incident, Minneapolis police have said.
