13 July, 2018, 23:08
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.
Twitter purge: Don't be surprised if you lose followers
Twitter announced the purge was coming and told users that most would typically see a loss of usually fewer than four followers. Although losing 2 million followers is undoubtedly a significant drop, proportionally speaking it's not necessarily huge.

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.
