Former NBA star Charles Oakley has been arrested in Las Vegas, TMZ has reported.  He is accused by the casino of cheating.

From TMZ Sports:

Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board tell us Oakley “was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known.”

Unclear what game he was playing at the time — but one source with knowledge of the incident says Oak tried to pull back a $100 chip after he realized he was going to lose.

Oakley made $46 mil during his NBA career.
