New York Knicks Legend Charles Oakley Allegedly Tried To Cheat Three Times Before Arrest In Las Vegas Casino

Last month, Charles Oakley was arrested at the Cosmopolitan hotel and casino in Las Vegas for allegedly trying to cheat. 

At the time, officials from the Nevada Gaming Board told TMZ that the New York Knicks legend “was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known.” 

Although, if convicted, a gambling charge could lead to up to 6 years in prison, a source close to Oakley said the incident was an “insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved.” 

However, amid the investigation, reports revealed Oakley was trying to cheat all night, ahead of his July 8th arrest. 

In court documents obtained by TMZ, Oakley was accused of trying to pull back a $100 chip when he realized he was about to lose, and then tried to add chips, on two separate occasions, when he had three of a kind. 

But lucky for the former baller, his original charge of attempting to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment was recently dropped to a misdemeanor for disorderly conduct, under a new plea deal.
