Juventus 'ultra' fan leaders arrested in tickets probe

TURIN, Italy (AP) Police arrested 12 hardcore Juventus "ultra" fan leaders Monday for a series of accusations, including making illegal demands to the club to obtain more tickets.

Police said fans threatened to carry out racist chants during matches if they were not given more tickets than the number allotted.

The investigation by Turin prosecutors is linked to alleged infiltration of the Calabrian `ndrangheta crime mob into the "ultras" section at Allianz Stadium.
