NEW YORK — New York City police say a scalper arrested for selling fake World Series tickets outside Yankee Stadium tried to win his freedom by bribing an officer with seats.

The 50-year-old man was arrested before the start of Game 2 last week after he was caught allegedly selling a fake ticket. Police say he had three other tickets on him.

Police say that after being booked at a nearby precinct, he told an officer he could get him tickets for another game in exchange for his release.

Douglas Clark was charged with attempted bribery and possession of a forged instrument. He didn't have a lawyer and there was no answer at his home.

There have been at least three other arrests for selling fake tickets during the World Series.
