GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay Packers on Thursday revoked four season tickets from two season ticket holders because of misconduct at games last season.

″The revocations stem from separate incidents at Milwaukee County Stadium and Lambeau Field,″ said Lance Lopes, the Packers’ general legal counsel.

″Both incidents involved drunk and disorderly fan behavior in the stadium during the course of the games, which led to arrests. In each case, the arrested parties were not the ticket holders of record.″
