Charles Oakley arrested for cheating at casino


After getting confirmation via security footage, casino police arrested Oakley.

In 1999 he was traded to the Toronto Raptors for Marcus Camby before playing out his remaining National Basketball Association days with the Houston Rockets in 2004. What game Oakley was playing at the time is unknown.

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

The Knicks icon was arrested at a Las Vegas casino on Sunday, TMZ Sports reported, for allegedly trying to cheat while gambling.

Nevada Gaming Control Board officials confirmed to TMZ that the longtime New York Knicks standout was "suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known", which the casino's security team is said to have later confirmed via video.

Oakley was recently cleared of misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a scuffle with Madison Square Garden security guards past year in which he was violently ejected from the stadium during a game. 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.

"This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved", a source from Oakley's camp told TMZ.

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

The former NBA All-Star played three seasons with the Raptors from 1998 to 2001. Oakley later agreed to a plea deal to have the charges dropped and subsequently filed the civil suit.
