Malicious Intent

Ticket-scalping
charge dropped

By ERIC MATTSON
Round two of last November's ticket
scalping controversy ended yesterday
when charges against LSA junior Mark
Gorge were dropped in 10th District
Court because the state's witnesses
were out of town.
Prosecuting attorney David Ladie
found out Tuesday that the two police
officers who were going to testify
against Gorge were on vacation, but
Judge S. J. Elden ruled that the trial
could not be postponed because the jury
had already been selected.
GORGE, THE owner of E-Z Ticket
Sales, allegedly tried to sell four tickets
to the Michigan-Ohio State football
game to police officers last November
for $56 each. The tickets each had a
value of $13.
Gorge was one of three people
charged with scalping in a two-day
period after an article appeared in the
Ann Arbor News on the city's lax enfor-
cement of scalping laws.
Last month, a six-person jury found
engineering junior John Haughton not-
guilty of scalping.

THE TRIAL of the third accused
scalper, Roy Shelef, is still pending.
Although Gorge said he is happy that
the charges were dropped, he said the
law against scalping, which carries a
maximum penalty of 90 days in fail and
a $100 fine, is unfair. "It is unrealistic to
think people are not going to sell
tickets," he said.
Gorge said he hopes to persuade the
Ann Arbor City Council to
decriminalize scalping in the same way
marijuana was decriminalized in the
early '70s.
He added that the state legislature
ought to regulate scalping by
establishing price ceilings rather than
banning the practice altogether.
"I think there's a difference between
people who are out to gouge the public
and someone who wants to make a
reasonable profit," he said. He said his
usual profit margin ranges between $5
and $10 per ticket.
Since his arrest last November,
Gorge said he has maintained a low
profile and stopped advertising. As for
the future, "I may scrap this business,"
he said.
