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

Howie Padilla says they were cited for unlawful interference.

No one was hurt in the protest Sunday. Metro Transit had buses standing by to get ticketholders to the stadium in time for kickoff.

The activists said they were protesting police brutality, as well as the light-rail trains being taken over by Super Bowl spectators rather than being available to ordinary citizens.
