A Decatur, Georgia man remains behind bars following his arrest Sunday for selling counterfeit tickets to the Tennessee Titans vs Chicago Bears game at LP Field.

Police said 46-year-old Tony McKibben had six counterfeit tickets and two counterfeit $100 bills in his possession when an undercover officer approached him near Second Avenue South and Broadway.

Police said McKibben attempted to flee when he realized he was talking to an officer. He was quickly taken into police custody.

McKibben is said to have initially identified himself as Giovanni Crawford before revealing his identity.  

McKibben is charged with theft for selling three counterfeit tickets for $300, identity theft and resisting arrest among others.

He remains jailed in lieu of a $426,500 bond.

At the time of his arrest, police said McKibben was wanted for third degree larceny in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

McKibben is expected to be extradited to Florida after his charges in Nashville are resolved.
