The resale of tickets for more than 50 cents above face value is prohibited in the state, and one of two reportedly tried to resell a $15 ticket for $200.
Arrested were Texas residents Harry T. Williams, 56, of Fort Worth, and William L. Herring, 48, of Arlington.
The Thunder, formerly the Seattle Supersonics, is playing in its first playoff series since moving to Oklahoma City, and ticket sales have been brisk, especially for Game 6, Friday, April 30, which the Thunder are assured to play back home because the best-of-seven series is tied 2-2. The team has limited sales to four per person, in part to slow down the secondary ticket market from acquiring too many tickets.
