Charles Oakley arrested at Las Vegas casino

Charles Oakley arrested at Las Vegas casino

Further details of the incident were not made available, but TMZ reported that Oakley pulled back a $100 chip after he realized he was going to lose his wager.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board today said Oakley was arrested Sunday at the Cosmopolitan casino-resort on the Las Vegas Strip on suspicion of committing or attempting to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment. He was then booked at Clark County Detention Center at about 5:30 p.m. local time.

If convicted, Oakley could face one to six years in prison for the crime, which TMZ says was caught on one of the casino's security cameras.

One source told TMZ that the arrest was not a big deal: 'This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved'. He's most well known for his runs with the Chicago Bulls (1985-88), New York Knicks (1988-98), and Toronto Raptors (1999-2001).

Oakley's Las Vegas arrest comes after a high-profile spat with the Knicks previous year following his forcible ejection from Madison Square Garden during a game in February. Court records show Oakley is scheduled to appear in court August 7. Dolan suggested Oakley was drunk and heckling him, and Oakley was arrested for assault, harassment and trespassing.

Oakley played 19 seasons in the National Basketball Association, with the bulk of his career spent with the Knicks. Criminal charges were dismissed in February of this year, but Dolan has banned Oakley from Madison Square Garden for life.

The 19-year NBA veteran now is serving as head coach of the Killer 3s in the Big3 summer basketball league.
