TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa police have released their highlights from the Super Bowl: 26 arrests, 18 ejections and four small planes that breached the secure air space above Raymond James Stadium.

Police say they charged nine people with selling counterfeit tickets Sunday. One person is charged with selling counterfeit NFL merchandise. Two others were charged with selling fake credentials to the game.

Two people allegedly tried to steal their way into the stadium. Police say they swiped one fan's tickets, but dropped them while attempting to flee from officers. The tickets were worth $800 apiece.

One driver was charged in a DUI crash involving a police horse. The horse and its officer were not injured.

The four planes breached the secure air space set around the stadium before the game began.
