A Worth County deputy says he was sent Saturday to the Diamond Jo Casino in Northwood, where he reviewed security video and saw King punching the machine's touch screen several times. The attack caused an estimated $2,000 in damage.

The deputy says King later admitted punching the machine out of frustration.
