Charles Oakley accused of committing fraudulent act in Vegas

Charles Oakley reportedly tried to pull a fast one at a Las Vegas casino earlier this month, and the former National Basketball Association star is now facing charges because of it. Further details of the incident were not made available, but TMZ reported that Oakley pulled back a $100 chip after he realized he was going to lose his wager. He was then taken into custody at 5:30 PM and booked into Clark County Detention Center.

Oak's gambling charge is serious business - "to commit or attempt to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment".

According to TMZ, the incident occurred on July 8 at the Cosmopolitan. The offense is considered a Class B felony and could come with a prison sentence of 1-6 years and up to $10,000 in fines.

Oakley has sued MSG and arena owner James Dolan over the incident. Oakley got in a fight with a security guard, causing a pause in the game, before being dragged away.

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.
