2 charged with fake NFL ticket sales

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities in New York say two men are charged with making and selling counterfeit tickets for the Super Bowl and other post-season NFL games.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown and Police Commissioner William J. Bratton announced charges Tuesday against Damon Daniels of New York City and Eugene Fladger of Philadelphia.

Information on their attorneys was not immediately available.

Besides the Super Bowl, authorities say blocks of high-quality fake tickets were sold on the Internet for the AFC championship in Boston and the NFC Wild Card game in Philadelphia.

They say other forged tickets were offered for the NFL Commissioner's Party at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan; the NFL Honors Party at Radio City Music Hall; and Super Bowl parking.

The NFL's security division had tipped off the NYPD.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
