A MAN WHO interrupted a Super Bowl news conference on Sunday with Most Valuable Player Malcom Smith to shout a conspiracy theory about the September 11, 2001, attacks was arrested and charged, a New Jersey State Police spokesman confirmed today.

The man, who grabbed a microphone and yelled “investigate 9/11 … 9/11 was perpetrated by people in our own government,” was charged with trespass and released, said Trooper Jeff Flynn.

Police did not immediately release his identity.

A total of 10 arrests were reported around the game in East RutherfordNew Jersey, all for minor matters, Flynn said.
