MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) -

A Metro Transit spokesman says 17 people taken away after blocking a light-rail line carrying ticket-holders to the Super Bowl in Minneapolis have been cited and released.

Howie Padilla says they were cited for unlawful interference with transit. No one was hurt in the protest Sunday.

Metro Transit had buses standing by to get ticket-holders to the stadium in time for kickoff. The activists said police brutality was among the issues they were protesting.
