Don Tollefson’s Bail Reduced to $10,000

Former sportscaster faces theft charges for sale of undelivered Super Bowl tickets.

CBS Philly reports that Don Tollefson’s bail on theft charges has been reduced from $250,000 to $10,000—but he must use his Glenside home as collateral. Tollefson was unable to make bail at the higher amount.

“Tollefson is facing felony theft charges, accused of selling ticket packages to sporting events such as the Super Bowl and the Kentucky Derby, then failing to produce the goods,” the station reports.

As of 2:20 p.m., Philly Mag’s Victor Fiorillo reported, jail officials said Tollefson was still being held in their facility.
