All Clear Issued Over Package Near Cowboys Stadium
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Arlington authorities have issued an all-clear after a suspicious package reported near the site of the Super Bowl was deemed safe.

Arlington fire Lt. Pete Arevalo said a package that a witness reported was thrown into a drainage ditch Friday morning near Cowboys Stadium turned out to be trash.

Arevalo said the area around the stadium was closed minutes after the 911 call around 8 a.m. He said bomb squad personnel examined the package on a street along the north side of the $1.3 billion stadium.

The Pittsburgh Steelers play the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6.
