Report: Charles Oakley arrested in Vegas for trying to cheat casino

TMZ Sports has learned ex-NBA star Charles Oakley 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 […]

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.”
