Charles Oakley Arrested, Accused Of Cheating At Vegas Casino

Another bad turn for Charles Oakley.

Oakley was recently cleared of misdemeanor assault charges stemming from a scuffle with Madison Square Garden security guards a year ago in which he was violently ejected from the stadium during a game.

Former NBA forward Charles Oakley was arrested Sunday after he was caught on camera allegedly cheating at the Cosmopolitan, a Las Vegas casino.

In a statement provided to the Daily News, the Nevada Gaming Board said Oakley "was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known".

Security at the Cosmopolitan stopped Oakley, with the incident being recorded.

However, according to TMZ, Oakley's reps say, "This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved".

Oakley was taken into custody and charged with committing or attempting to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment. He was then booked at Clark County Detention Center at about 5:30 p.m. local time.

The incident came two days after Oakley coached the Killer 3's in a 51-49 loss to the 3 Headed Monsters at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

Oakley was a beloved Knick from 1989 to 1998, a 6-foot-8, grizzled and tough enforcer who battled Michael Jordan and the Eastern Conference. Oakley has fought the charges.

Oakley previously filed a lawsuit against Dolan alleging that he was the one assaulted.
