TMZ: Charles Oakley Arrested for Allegedly Cheating at Las Vegas Casino on Video
13 July, 2018, 23:10
Former NBA star Charles Oakley has been arrested in Las Vegas for attempting to cheat while gambling, USA reports said Thursday. Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board say he was "suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known". A source told TMZ that Oakley tried to remove a $100 chip from a wager before being confronted.
Oak's gambling charge is serious business - "to commit or attempt to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment".
It's not known what game Oakley was playing at The Cosmopolitan, but TMZ reported the incident was captured on surveillance video. The offense is considered a Class B felony and could come with a prison sentence of 1-6 years and up to $10,000 in fines. By the time of the 2017 incident, the relationship between the two parties had become more than hostile so Dolan had plenty of motive for wanting to embarrass Oakley.
Oakley started his career with the Chicago Bulls in 1985, but really made his name during a decade-long stint with the New York Knicks. The Knicks said Oakley had been engaging in "abusive behavior", but Oakley argued he was targeted because of his public criticism of Knicks owner James Dolan.
"This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved", an unidentified source close to Oakley told TMZ.
Oakley is the coach for the Killer 3s of the Big3 league now. Oakley got in a fight with a security guard, causing a pause in the game, before being dragged away.
