The ongoing effort to sell sufficient tickets to avoid blackouts in Jacksonville has encountered an obstacle, arising from the fact that the team’s season ticket sales manager recently took a ride in the back of a “black and white.”
We’ve been advised, and the team has confirmed, that Senior Sales Manager, Season and Premium Seating, Thomas Patterson was arrested on July 18 for disorderly intoxication/public disturbance and resisting an officer without violence.
Patterson, 35, has resigned from the team.
Reached by phone, Jaguars senior V.P. of communications and media Dan Edwards declined to comment on the situation.
