BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Federal authorities accused three men of trafficking counterfeit tickets for Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.

Officials with U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Alabama authorities seized dozens of fake tickets and $7,000 in counterfeit cash at a Jan. 31 traffic stop.

Hunter and Wilcoxson are also charged with possession of counterfeit U.S. currency.
