Ex-Knicks star Charles Oakley arrested at Las Vegas casino

On Thursday, TMZ Sports reported Oakley tried to remove a $100 chip from a wager after realizing he was going to lose. It is unclear what game Oakley was playing, but 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 said.

Former NBA star Charles Oakley has been arrested in Las Vegas for attempting to cheat while gambling, US reports said Thursday. The team played in Oakland, Calif., two days before the incident and has a game in Detroit on Friday.

Another bad turn for Charles Oakley.

Oakley, 54, is charged with committing or attempting to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment, the report said.

If he wins this year, he'll tie Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul for the most wins in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category. This year's Emmy Awards will broadcast live on NBC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m.

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. Oakley was booked into the Clark County Detention Center without incident, the board said.He is scheduled to appear in court August 7. If convicted he could face up to six years in prison.

However, according to TMZ, Oakley's reps say, "This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved". On February 8, 2017, Oakley was arrested at Madison Square Garden after trying to go after Knicks owner James Dolan.

Oakley was arrested on three counts of assault for his fight with the security guards and another for criminal trespassing.

The Knicks have been one of the worst National Basketball Association franchises of the last 15 years and Oakley's criticisms of the team and management has led to a strained relationship with the organization.
