A man was arrested after allegedly trying to sell fake tickets to Sunday’s Nashville Predators playoff game. 

According to an affidavit from Metro Nashville Police, officers spotted an unlicensed vendor trying to sell game tickets along Broadway.

Officers asked the suspect, identified as Reginald Henderson, to stop but later spotted him trying to scalp tickets again.

That's when they took a closer look and determined the tickets were fake. It's not clear how many people, if any, were taken.

The tickets were valued at $1056.

Henderson was arrested and charged with criminal simulation. Police said he admitted to coming into town from Atlanta to “make some money.”

Anyone buying tickets outside of the box office should make sure they are coming from a licensed ticket broker.
