TMZ: Oakley Arrested in Vegas for Cheating 

Post#1 » by WajaBawl » Thu Jul 12, 2018 1:34 pm

Read on Twitter


Charles Oakley is learning the hard way ... if you try to cheat a Vegas casino, you'll end up behind bars.

TMZ Sports has learned ... the ex-NBA star was arrested at the Cosmopolitan on July 8 after allegedly trying to pull a fast one during a gambling session -- and it was all caught on video.

Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board tell us Oakley "was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known."

Unclear what game he was playing at the time -- but one source with knowledge of the incident says Oak tried to pull back a $100 chip after he realized he was going to lose.

FYI, Oakley reportedly made more than $46 mil during his NBA career.
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.

The 54-year-old was taken into custody at 5:30 PM and booked into Clark County Detention Center.

Oak's gambling charge is serious business -- "to commit or attempt to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment." He faces between 1 to 6 years in prison if convicted.

A source close to Oakley tells us, "This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved."

The Casino wrote in a statement Wednesday night that Oakley "came to the Casino tonight and behaved in a highly inappropriate and completely abusive manner."

The statement concluded: "He was a great Knick and we hope he gets some help soon."

Lol Oakley trying to make himself one of these new age celebrities.

Btw, I enjoyed watching him coach against Gary Payton's team in the big 3. That was fun and Oak was doing a good job.
A new era or error?

Putting the ass in dumbass. Vegas Stakes attempted cheating very seriously and they essentially having a zero tolerance policy. I'm guessing they also like to make examples of high-profile people. I could see him doing some time over this.
All in all he's just another prick with no wall

Could you imagine being the manager of that casino and have to confront Oakley about cheating. I'd quit right there on the spot.

They dont confront. Working with surveillance, I imagine for him about a dozen security guard asked him politely to come with them. They have their own holding cells. They want zero conflicts on the floor. I watched monitors at Foxwoods for 3 years. The managers/pit bosses focus mainly on keeping surrounding tables happy.
