Tuscaloosa police arrested two Georgia men for selling counterfeit tickets to last weekend's Alabama-LSU football game.

According to a release, officers were flagged down by a fan who bought tickets from the suspects around noon Saturday in the 2000 block of University Boulevard. An initial investigation by the officer didn't produce probable cause to arrest one of the men involved, but authorities later found both men at their parked vehicle, where a stash of fake tickets were discovered. Both men were then arrested.

Collin Christopher Young, 48, of Ellenwood, Ga., and Alfonso Bernard Daniels, 44, of Atlanta, Ga., were both charged with 16 counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and taken to the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where their respective bonds were set at $240,000.

We have non-firearms related weapons, we have karaoke machines, musical instruments, car stereos, underwear."More >>
