NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A Nashville store clerk faces a felony charge after he allegedly sold a losing lottery ticket to a customer.

Police arrested Eric Pitt Monday night while he was working as a clerk at the Delta Express on Old Hickory Boulevard in Hermitage.

According to court records, in September, Pitt took a ticket from the stack and scratched off the validation code.

After determining it was not a winner, police said he put it back in the stack and sold it to a customer.

The customer noticed what had happened and called police.

Pitt, 34, was charged with altering a lottery ticket, a Class D felony in Tennessee, and booked into the Metro jail.
