Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter is facing felony charges for allegations that he cheated at a craps game at a Las Vegas casino. Before I get to the arrest, I would love to ask Mr. Carter, why he was gambling at Texas Station? Out of all the casinos in Vegas, that is the last one I would expect to find a NFL player cheating at craps.
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. He provided a North Las Vegas address when he was booked at the Clark County jail in Las Vegas and released with a Monday court date.
The Broncos are aware of the matter and are investigating the situation. Carter seems confident that he will beat the rap.
Carter said on Twitter:
"Regarding the matter that allegedly occurred during a brief trip to my hometown of Las Vegas, I am fully confident that when the facts come out I will be cleared."
What the hell was he thinking? Anyone in their right mind knows that you're not gonna cheat the casino. Eventually you'll get caught. Besides Carter should have a six figure income and shouldn't have to worry on trying to get over on the house.
I think Carter will get away with a light penalty in this case, but he should learn from his actions.
