CHARLES OAKLEY CHARGED FOR CHEATING 3X WHILE GAMBLING IN CASINO

 

TMZ Sports is reporting that Charles Oakley was busted for cheating not once, not twice but three times while playing Ultimate Texas Hold'Em table game recently at a casino in Las Vegas.  TMZ Sports claims to have obtained court documents which explains Oakley's alleged scheme in detail: 

 Here's the deal ... Oakley was playing the Ultimate Texas Hold'Em table game -- where both player and dealer get 2 cards, in addition to a community 5-card draw. 

Of the 7 cards in play, the dealer and player use their best 5 cards to see who has the best hand. 

During the first hand, Oakley started off strong ... with a pair of 4s. But, the dealer ended up with a winning hand ... 2 pair. When Oakley realized he was gonna lose, he allegedly pulled back a $100 chip from his bet. 

Later on during the gambling session, Oakley had a monster hand -- 3 of a kind -- and this time, officials say he secretly ADDED chips to his bet on 2 different occasions during the hand, thereby increasing his payout by $125. 

Officials say it was all captured on casino surveillance -- and he was arrested on the spot. 

Apparently the saying "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" is fitting here also because although initially charged with a felony which could have landed him up to six years in prison his charges were recently cut to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct and he's expected to get through this incident without serving any jail time.
