The D.A.'s office says charges were not immediately disclosed, notes the L.A. Times. However, a spokesperson from D.A. Steve Cooley's office released the names of the individuals arrested:
- Patrick Lynch, the former longtime general manager of the Coliseum and the companion Sports Arena, was arrested at his home in Torrance.
- Todd DeStefano, the former events manager at the Coliseum, was arrested at his friend's home in Venice.
- Reza Gerami, the chief executive of the rave promotion company Go Ventures, was arrested at his home in Malibu.
Last year, the three were sued for more than $1 million by the Coliseum Commission -- a joint-powers authority that oversees the taxpayer-owned complex -- alleging they siphoned off revenues.
