GROTON, CT (AP) -

Police in Groton have arrested a New York City man and charged him in connection with selling counterfeit concert tickets.

Police say 23-year-old Fred T. Lyons met with an undercover detective in Groton Friday and attempted to sell him counterfeit concert tickets to an event at an area casino. They say when officers identified themselves to Lyons, he pushed them out of the way and ran. He was captured after a brief chase.

One officer was treated for minor injuries.

Lyons is charged with assault on a police officer, two counts of interfering with a police officer, conspiracy to commit larceny and forgery. He's being held on $50,000 bond. It wasn't immediately known if he's represented by a lawyer.
