A 19-year-old employee at AT&T Stadium faces a charge of commercial bribery after letting people into the Dallas Cowboys-Philadelphia Eagles game on Sunday night.

Diego Soto, a contracted employee of the stadium, let fans into the game who didn’t have tickets in exchange for money, according to police.

Police said Soto admitted to accepting the money.

Commercial bribery is a state jail felony in Texas. Soto’s bond was $1,500.

Standing-room-only tickets for the game were going for as high as $200.

The Cowboys beat the Eagles 33-13 to take over first place in the NFC East. While Dallas QB Dak Prescott is not known to play well in the playoffs, owner Jerry Jones said his performance, “that ought to shut that door of questioning his ability to play in a playoff-type game.”

According to WFAA, an ABC affiliate, “Arlington police said they responded to 90 calls for service in and around the stadium during the game, from parking violations to disturbances and fights. Most of those calls did not result in official reports or arrests; two arrests were made for public intoxication and one other person was arrested for having outstanding warrants.”
