Pile driver

Cops arrested a man after he was allegedly caught with counterfeit tickets to World Wrestling Entertainm­ent’s Summer Slam event at a Flatbush Avenue arena on Aug. 19.

The arresting officer claims he spotted the suspect in possession of the bogus tickets outside venue near Atlantic Avenue at 6:40 pm, before busting him on a felony charge of criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Pedaling crime

A thief rode off with a 66-year-old man’s bike he locked up on Seventh Avenue on Aug. 15.

The victim told police he secured his fixed-gear bike to a rack between Sixth and Seventh streets at 9 am, and returned a half-hour later to to find it missing.

Out cold

Somebody cold-cocked a drunken man on Flatbush Avenue on Aug. 11.

A police officer reported spotting the victim unconscious on the sidewalk between Seventh Avenue and Park Place at 3:48 am, bleeding from wounds on his face.

Once conscious, the man said he was sucker-punched, but otherwise refused to cooperate, and the case has been closed without any arrests, cops said.
