'Boomer and Carton co-host Craig Carton arrested

'Boomer and Carton co-host Craig Carton arrested”

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and police arrested sports radio host Craig Carton early Wednesday, sources said. The FBI reportedly took the 48-year-old into custody from his Manhattan home.

Carton is suspected of defrauding investors out of more than $2 million. The charges stem from the fraudulent sale of fake discounted tickets.

In Carton's absence, former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason co-hosted the show Wednesday morning with Jerry Recco, the show's update anchor.

The U.S. District Court Southern District of NY is expected to release more information later TODAY (9/6).

Carton and Esiason have hosted the WFAN morning show together since 2007.

CBS Radio, which owns WFAN, issued a statement saying, "We are aware of the situation and are cooperating with authorities".
