TMZ: Charles Oakley Arrested for Allegedly Cheating at Las Vegas Casino on Video

Charles Oakley arrested for allegedly cheating at casino

Casino regulators in Nevada are accusing former New York Knicks star Charles Oakley of gambling fraud.

Details of the incident have not been released but it is believed Oakley is suspected of reducing his wager on a gambling table after the outcome was known. After they reviewed the footage, Oakley reportedly was booked at Clark County Detention Center.

Oakley was arrested by Nevada Gaming Control Board Enforcement agents at The Cosmopolitan, a popular hotel in Las Vegas. 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.

The six-foot-eight Oakley was a rugged enforcer playing alongside Patrick Ewing and has kept his tough-guy persona long after retirement, trading barbs with former rival Charles Barkley.

"This is not a significant matter and we expect it to be resolved quickly", Oakley's attorney Alex Spiro told ESPN. That allegedly continued into his advanced years-he was told to leave Madison Square Garden during a 2017 game, and was caught on camera in an incident involving area security.

Oakley is the coach for the Killer 3s of the Big3 league now. Oakley was charged with misdemeanor assault and trespassing, among other charges.Oakley later agreed to a plea deal to have the charges dropped and subsequently filed the civil suit. Oakley got in a fight with a security guard, causing a pause in the game, before being dragged away.
