Late last week, a court ruled that the St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners must release information pertaining to the 2006 investigation of police officers who allegedly confiscated World Series tickets from scalpers and then gave the tickets to family and friends. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the case arose after a Texas ticket scalper, who was arrested for allegedly trying to sell tickets, complained that officers stole money from him. That complaint was not proven, but it led to information that officers had allegedly confiscated World Series tickets from scalpers and gave those tickets away. The 2006 World Series was won by the St. Louis Cardinals over the Detroit Tigers. Eight members of the police force were either suspended or demoted as a result of the investigation, but details of the investigation had not been released.
