It was a superb day for Arsenal, with fans around the world celebrating their side’s success against their rivals.
A group of Arsenal supporters in Uganda managed to get in serious trouble during their celebrations, though.
As reported by the BBC, a group of Arsenal fans took to the streets of Jinja on Monday morning to celebrate the victory.
The fans were wearing Arsenal shirts and travelled in a convoy of five vehicle.
One of the supporters even carried a symbolic trophy that they had bought at a local store.
But their celebrations came to a halt when police intervened.
The group were told they didn’t have a permit to hold the procession, which is a public order offence.
At least eight Arsenal supporters partaking in the celebrations were arrested.
Footage has emerged which appears to show the Arsenal supporters celebrating in the streets of Jinja before they were arrested.

Arsenal fan arrested in Uganda after Man Utd win speaks out
One of the supporters arrested, Baker Kasule, has spoken out.
“I don’t know what we have done but we were simply celebrating our victory over rivals Manchester United,” Kasule said.
While James Mubi, the regional police boss and a self-declared Arsenal fan, said: “What would happen if an altercation with rival fans broke out? They did not inform the police to provide security for their procession.”
Mubi is also said to have wondered why they were celebrating when only half of the matches in the season had been played.
