It's the season of summer music fests in Chicago, and with it comes a rash of people selling fake tickets.

In the latest incident, a man was accused of selling counterfeit tickets to the Spring Awakening Music Festival for $450.

Antian Harmon, 23, of Riverdale, was arrested Wednesday evening in the 3600 block of South Wentworth Avenue after police identified him as the man who tried to sell two tickets to the June music festival to three teenagers from Oak Lawn.

Harmon was selling the fake tickets from an outpost at the Wentworth Garden Projects when he was arrested and charged with forgery, according to the police report. Harmon allegedly admitted to police that he knew the tickets were fraudulent but he was hoping "to make an extra $100" by selling them.

Harmon was brought to the Cook County Criminal Courthouse Thursday afternoon and released on a $10,000 I-bond.
