TMZ: Charles Oakley Arrested for Allegedly Cheating at Las Vegas Casino on Video

National Basketball Association legend Charles Oakley was reportedly arrested at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas earlier this week for allegedly trying to cheat the casino.

Details of the incident have not been released but it is believed Oakley is suspected of reducing his wager on a gambling table after the outcome was known. Oakley allegedly attempted to take back a $100 chip after he realized he was about to lose the game.

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.

As a player, Oakley developed a reputation as a brawler on the court. The offense is considered a Class B felony and could come with a prison sentence of 1-6 years and up to $10,000 in fines.

One source told TMZ that the arrest was not a big deal: 'This is an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved'.

Oakley's Las Vegas arrest comes after a high-profile spat with the Knicks past year following his forcible ejection from Madison Square Garden during a game in February.

Last year, he was escorted from his seats at Madison Square Garden and arrested after an altercation near team owner James Dolan.

Oakley now is the head coach of the Killer 3's in Ice Cube's BIG3 League. Oakley got in a fight with a security guard, causing a pause in the game, before being dragged away.

Oakley previously filed a lawsuit against Dolan alleging that he was the one assaulted.
