Watch as rioters at Pennsylvania State College converge on a CBS news van and topple it on to its side. “Flip that truck!” a voice is heard chanting in the crowd.

Briefly an individual in a baseball cap and windbreaker who appears to be CBS personnel appears by the driver’s side door of the van, but he quickly realizes what is about to happen and melts back into the crowd.

The students are protesting the college’s decision to fire coach Joe Paterno over allegations that he helped cover up a scandal involving the rape of at-risk underage boys by Assistant Coach Jerry Sandusky.
