Police say 12 Sparta Prague fans were arrested for clashes during a Europa League match at Inter Milan.

The fans were accused of assaulting stadium security stewards at the end of the first half. Police say the fans kicked and punched stewards guarding an exit ramp, injuring 16 stewards.

The 12 arrested fans were released from custody on Friday after the charges were processed. Nearly all of the fans denied participating in the clash.

A trial date has not been set yet.
