Ticket broker Jeff Cook has been arrested after he allegedly oversold for Georgia’s trip to Notre Dame last week.
Georgia fans flocked to South Bend for a rare road trip up North.
Notre Dame Stadium was painted red during the game, but not every fan of the Dawgs that had ordered tickets was able to make it in.
Last Saturday, word came out that a ticket broker named Jeff Cook had failed to deliver hundreds of sold tickets to fans making the trip up. On Friday morning, he was arrested.

From WXIA in Atlanta:
The Sheriff’s Office executed a warrant at Cook’s house in Eatonton on Friday morning and arrested him, Sills told 11Alive.
Cook is charged with selling sports tickets without a license and advertising sports tickets for sale without posting a license number and his advertisements. He was released later on Friday after he posted bond of $2,000.
Fans alerted the police to Cook’s undelivered tickets last week. He allegedly oversold his allotment of tickets to the big match-up, and failed to answer many fans who reached out to ask about their seats.
The Georgia fans who were able to receive their tickets saw a big Bulldogs win, as the team took down Notre Dame 20-19. Hopefully those who were defrauded are made whole soon.
