Police say more than 50 people were arrested Monday night in Lexington as crowds celebrated the win.

Police Chief Ronnie Bastin says he expects more arrests.

But he also wants people to keep that number in perspective.

Bastin says, "We're estimating a crowd -between all three venues- between 15,000  and 20,000...That the number of arrests were made and the numbers of problems we had, we felt like were relatively small."

A man was shot on Virginia and Limestone.

The injuries were minor.

A police car was also involved in a crash.
