Police found nearly 200 fake tickets for Sunday's Colts-Patriots game and arrested three Atlanta men on felony counterfeiting charges after making a routine traffic stop.

Indianapolis police also recovered hundreds of tickets for other sporting events, including several college football games, after officers pulled over a car driven by 36-year-old Eric North for speeding.

Officers arrested North, 48-year-old Dwight Wilcox and 46-year-old Archie Blair on preliminary charges of counterfeiting, a Class C felony.

Police say more than 40 people were duped into buying fake tickets for Sunday's game, which sold for $150 or more.
