LONDON (AP) - A spectator at the London Olympics has been arrested and fined after officials say he and two other people verbally abused the family of an Australian track cyclist.

Police say the three were ejected from the London Velodrome on Thursday night. They are reported to have hurled abuse at the family of Kaarle McCulloch. She was bronze in the women's team sprint with Anna Meares.

Games organizers say they won't tolerate abusive behavior.
