New York Gov. David A. Paterson, already reeling from charges that he and other administration officials intervened in a domestic violence case involving a top aide, was charged Wednesday with ethics violations for accepting free tickets to a World Series game at Yankee Stadium last fall.

The state Commission on Public Integrity charged that the governor accepted as many as five $425-a-seat tickets from the New York Yankees as gifts in violation of Public Officers Law §§73(5)(a)(b). The commission also said he did not intend to pay for the tickets prior to the game and tried to do so only after media inquiries about the presence of his party at the Oct. 28 opening Series game against the Philadelphia Phillies.
