More Troubling Details Emerge From The Craig Carton Story

Disgraced former WFAN host Craig Carton.

Here are the latest details.

Craig Carton, a sports radio host for WFAN, was arrested earlier this week for fraud. The co-host of Boomer & Carton is accused of running a sham ticket-reselling operation to pay back roughly $3 million in gambling debts.

The New York Post is now reporting that Carton's Tourette syndrome charity, Tic Toc Stop, might have been connected in the scheme.

From their report:

Internal Revenue Service records show the Tic Toc Stop nonprofit has raised more than $1 million since Carton — who was suspended from his sports-talk radio job following his arrest Wednesday — founded it in 2013 to “fight against Tourette Syndrome.”

Carton and two of his four kids suffer from the condition.

But nearly all the cash raised has been spent on ​something other than Tourette syndrome, including ​a series of golf outings, galas and other fundraising events​.

An expert from the Charity Navigator told the Post that these details are a major "red flag" for the charity.
