Man Fined $700 For Selling MÖTLEY CRÜE Concert Tickets At Fair

The Associated Press has issued the following report from KSTP-TV:

When Denny Bennett couldn't make it to the MÖTLEY CRÜE concert at the Minnesota State Fair, he figured he'd just sell his tickets to recoup the money he spent.

He ended up spending a lot more.

Undercover authorities in front of the grand stand wrote Bennett a citation for solicitation without a permit. That carries a $700 fine.

Bennett says he wasn't trying to scalp the tickets, just offering face value.

But fair officials say it is illegal to sell anything on the fairgrounds without a permit, including concert tickets at face value.
