Deal helps fans in wheelchairs at Pistons games

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - The federal government says the home of the Detroit Pistons will make improvements for fans in wheelchairs. The government says The Palace of Auburn Hills will provide at least 99 wheelchair-accessible seats and an equal number of companion seats. The agreement says tickets for those seats will be sold in the same manner as other seats and will be available online through Ticketmaster. Palace Sports and Entertainment also will make changes at food stands, restrooms and parking lots. The U.S. Attorney's Office says it received complaints that The Palace wasn't in compliance with federal disability law. In a statement, Palace Sports thanked the government for helping to improved services at the arena.
