16 men charged with counterfeit ticketing scheme for Bears and Bulls games

(CHICAGO) Sixteen men have been charged with a wide-ranging counterfeit ticketing scheme for Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks’ games, and other events and concerts, at Soldier Field, the United Center and the Allstate Arena in northwest suburban Rosemont.

The sixteen men were each charged with one felony count of forgery, according to a statement from Attorney General Lisa Madigan. Eight of the men were arrested by Chicago Police and FBI, but the other eight are still at a large.

Madigan alleged that the men made counterfeit tickets to Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks’ games, as well as WWE Extreme Wrestling and Disney on Ice, Madigan said.

The men then sold the tickets on Craiglist, meeting the buyers at area restaurants and coffee shops, Madigan said. The buyers found out the tickets were counterfeit when they tried to enter the events.

“Today is another great example of cooperation between federal and local partners working together and to remind the public to be cautious and vigilant when purchasing tickets,” said FBI Chicago Special Agent in Charge Michael Anderson.

McCaskey on McDonald: Bears Chairman Speaks On Letting Player Go

By Nick Gale, WLS NEWS

(Chicago) Bears Chairman George McCaskey is speaking to reporters for the first time since the team released Ray McDonald following allegations of domestic violence. He was asked if he had any regret in signing McDonald in the first place, given his history…

“I’ve asked my self that question a lot,” McCaskey said. “What more could I have done, is there somebody else we could have consulted with, should I have taken more time to make a decision. I don’t know. We thought we had a good structure, a good support system and we thought we had safeguards in place in case something like this happened.”

The Bears signed the defensive end in March despite his previous run-ins with the law. McDonald was arrested in California Monday on charges of child endangerment and domestic violence.
