Oakley arrested in Las Vegas for cheat attempt

National Basketball Association legend Charles Oakley was reportedly arrested at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas earlier this week for allegedly trying to cheat the casino.

The 54-year-old former New York Knicks power forward was detained on July 8 after seeking to add or reduce his bet on a casino table game, according to the Nevada Gaming Control board. A source told TMZ that Oakley tried to remove a $100 chip from a wager before being confronted. The Clark County Detention Center confirmed Oakley had been arrested but has since been released.

He was arrested and charged with committing or attempting to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment.

The state takes such crimes seriously, which is why Oakley is facing between 1 and 6 years in prison if convicted.

The NBA Summer League has gone about as well as you could hope if you're a fan of the New York Knicks. 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. The Knicks said Oakley had been engaging in "abusive behavior", but Oakley argued he was targeted because of his public criticism of Knicks owner James Dolan.

Oakley and prosecutors had agreed to a deal last August that the charges would be erased if Oakley stayed out of trouble for six months.

In May 2011, Oakley filed a lawsuit against the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas for an alleged "gang-style beat down" by security in 2010.
