I've never been a Vegas kind of guy, but even as ignorant as I am about the place I figured it would never be a good idea to go there and try to cheat the casinos. I guess I didn't know the half of it:
Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter is facing felony charges in Nevada alleging that he cheated at a craps game last weekend at a Las Vegas-area casino, authorities said Thursday.
Carter, 24, was arrested late Saturday at the Texas Station casino in North Las Vegas. Security officials reported he was videotaped adding a $5 chip to three bets after the dice already rolled, according to a police report. Carter denied wrongdoing when police arrived.
Carter faces three counts of committing a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment, a felony in Nevada that carries a possible sentence of one to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Yowza. Three felony counts over what, $15 total? Am I missing something or is that not pretty disproportionate to the crime? I would, of course, expect Nevada to take a particularly dim view of such a crime, but that's ridiculous.
