Mike Ornstein, a marketing agent who reportedly once represented Reggie Bush and is a confidant of New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, recently pleaded guilty to federal charges related to a scheme to resell Super Bowl tickets. According to the New York Times, based on a story that was first reported by Sports Business Journal, Ornstein and others, who have not been publicly named by federal prosecutors, scalped Super Bowl tickets from 1998 to 2006. Other charges could be filed in relation to the case, because the Times reported that the tickets were obtained at face value by individuals who had access to them “through their employment.” The investigation could potentially implicate NFL players, coaches, executives or others who are able to buy Super Bowl tickets at face value. Ornstein has agreed to pay $350,000 in fines and will be sentenced in January.
