  • Charles Oakley arrested for allegedly cheating at casino

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.

Another bad turn for Charles Oakley.

"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". A source told TMZ that Oakley tried to remove a $100 chip from a wager before being confronted.

Oakley "was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known", officials from the Nevada Gaming Board told the website. He was then taken into custody at 5:30 PM and booked into Clark County Detention Center. 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.

However, according to TMZ, Oakley's reps say, "This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved". However, Oakley's relationship with the Knicks has been strained for years because of his criticism of James Dolan, Madison Square Garden's chairman.


Oakley is the coach for the Killer 3s of the Big3 league now.

The No. 9 overall pick in 1985 out of Virginia Union, Oakley spent 19 years in the National Basketball Association.

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.

Oakley was charged with misdemeanor assault and trespassing, among other charges.
