A suspicious package that was spotted near the site of the Super Bowl turned out to be trash and an all-clear has been issued by Arlington authorities.
Arlington Fire Department 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.
