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.

The 54-year-old former New York Knicks power forward was detained on July 8 after seeking to add or reduce his bet on a casino table game, according to the Nevada Gaming Control board.

The Knicks icon was arrested at a Las Vegas casino on Sunday, TMZ Sports reported, for allegedly trying to cheat while gambling. He was then taken into custody at 5:30 PM and booked into Clark County Detention Center.

He was arrested and charged with committing or attempting to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment. What game Oakley was playing at the time is unknown. If convicted, he faces one to six years in prison.

Trump hails 'tremendous progress' on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defence spending

"This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved", a source close to Oakley told TMZ.

Former NBA star Charles Oakley has found himself in trouble again, in a place where he's found plenty of trouble in the past.

Oakley is also facing a string of unrelated minor charges, most notably a civil suit against Madison Square Garden and Knicks Owner James Dolan following a courtside bust-up in February 2017.

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. (Spiro told Law&Crime in an email on Thursday that the NY case was dismissed and sealed.) Oakley has sued MSG and arena owner James Dolan over the incident. He has since filed a lawsuit against Dolan and MSG alleging he was a victim of assault, battery, false imprisonment and slander.
