Charles Oakley arrested at Las Vegas casino

Charles Oakley

After getting confirmation via security footage, casino police arrested Oakley. He's most well known for his runs with the Chicago Bulls (1985-88), New York Knicks (1988-98), and Toronto Raptors (1999-2001).

"TMZ Sports has learned ... the ex-NBA star 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".

In a statement to the news outlet, the Nevada Gaming Board said the 54-year-old Oakley is "suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known".

Security video of the incident supported Oakley's claim that the ejection was ordered by team owner James Dolan, who claimed the long-time power forward was acting drunk and belligerent towards the team.

He was arrested and charged with committing or attempting to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment.

"This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved", a source from Oakley's camp told TMZ.

Oakley played 19 seasons in the National Basketball Association, 10 of which were with the Knicks, before retiring in 2004 with the Rockets.

Oakley now coaches the Killer 3s of the Big3 league.

Oakley previously filed a lawsuit against Dolan alleging that he was the one assaulted. The charges against Oakley were later cleared as part of an agreement, which included banning him from the arena for a year.
