A man was arrested late Friday night after police say he was attempting to sell fraudulent parking tickets to people in downtown Nashville.
Police received a complaint around 10:35 p.m. from the man who oversees booking operations at Eagle Parking near 2nd Avenue South and Broadway.
The man reported he pulled into the lot and Larrie Carroll, 57, waved him in as if he was working as an attendant.
The man told Carroll to stay where he was while he called police.
When officers arrived, they allegedly found 23 counterfeit parking tickets in Carroll’s hand, along with a small amount of cash consistent with the sale of illegal tickets.
At least one car in the parking lot had a matching ticket and had actually been booted for having the incorrect ticket.
Carroll was arrested for possessing counterfeit tickets and attempting to defraud individuals.
He was charged with criminal simulation and booked into the Metro jail on $15,000 bond.
Police noted he has been arrested at least 16 times for the same thing.
