UPDATE 11:52 a.m. EST: False alarm. The suspicious package was just garabage (according to ESPN's Trey Wingo). Carry on!
This is the kind of Super Bowl story that we truly don’t want: a bomb squad has been deployed the Cowboys Stadium because of a suspicious package.
The Dallas/Fort Worth NBC affiliate writes:
The 900 block of Randol Mill Road in front of Cowboys Stadium has been closed because of a suspicious package.
Officials from the Arlington Bomb Squad and HAZMAT teams are on site investigating the device, which is believed to be in a manhole.
So far, the stadium and surrounding area has not been evacuated.
We’ll update when something (or, hopefully, nothing) happens.
