Alleged Scalpers Flagged at CWS

As the College World Series was wrapping up, police were putting the finishing touches on their own work at the ballpark.

There have been some alleged scalping incidents but nothing that involved big money.

A Phoenix, Arizona man was picked up after allegedly trying to sell two tickets valued at $35 for $50.

Police say they caught a man from Channelview, Texas trying to sell two tickets valued at $60 for $120 apiece.

A Tempe, Arizona man was arrested for allegedly trying to sell two tickets valued at $35 for $55 dollars apiece.

All of those tickets that were used in scalping were returned to the box office.

Bottom line: you cannot ask for more than the face value of a ticket within a half-mile of the venue. That's the law whether it's at TD Ameritrade, CenturyLink Arena or the Orpheum.
