F.B.I. investigating possible threat against Super Bowl

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Federal authorities are investigating a possible threat against the Super Bowl.

The FBI is investigating after several fiber optic lines were cut in California.

Authorities are looking into whether it may have been a test for those planning to threaten game.

It will be held next month in Santa Clara.

A former counter terrorism expert says cutting cables can cause massive problems and maybe even stop the Super Bowl.

For now, the threat is considered "minimal."

Investigators say the bigger concern is the type of attack carried out by so-called "lone wolves."
