NBC New York – Craig Carton, co-host of WFAN’s morning sports talk show “Boomer & Carton,” has been arrested on investment fraud-related counts in connection with an alleged fake ticket scam. 

The FBI arrested Carton, 48, at his home in Manhattan early Wednesday, the sources said. He was allegedly involved in an investment scam through which he and another man claimed to be running a discount ticket broker business that never existed, according to the sources.

Oh my. This is actually wild news. The report from a spokesman with the U.S. Attorney’s Office confirmed that Carton was arrested and charged with wire and securities fraud. Not all of the details have been released yet, but the report is that Carton and another man ripped off a couple investors of a few million dollars.

Boomer started off the show this morning by saying Carton is “under the weather.” I’m actually in shock right now. If you live in the tristate area and love sports, Boomer and Carton are a staple on your morning commute. I don’t know where this will go from here and we obviously need the full report before any decisions are made, but this is a huge, huge development that a lot of people including myself will be invested in.
