Charles Oakley Arrested, Accused Of Cheating At Vegas Casino

Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board told TMZ that the 54-year-old Oakley 'was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known'.

According to TMZ, the former Knicks star was arrested at the Cosmopolitan casino in Las Vegas on Sunday after he allegedly tried to pull back a $100 chip when he realized he was going to lose his bet.

"Oak was confronted about the incident - and it was kicked over to a security team which reviewed the casino video footage ... confirming the alleged cheating". He was subsequently booked into the Clark County Detention Center without incident. If convicted of a first offense, the violator is subject to a sentence of 1-6 years in a state prison and a fine of no more than $10,000.

Oakley now coaches the Killer 3s of the Big3 league.

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 a year ago following his forcible ejection from Madison Square Garden during a game in February. (Spiro told Law&Crime in an email on Thursday that the NY case was dismissed and sealed.) Oakley has sued MSG and arena owner James Dolan over the incident.

Oakley accepted a deal with prosecutors that eventually dismissed misdemeanor assault and trespass charges against him after he stayed out of trouble for six months.

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