STATELINE, Nev. (AP) - Former NBA all-star Antoine Walker has been arrested on criminal charges stemming from $822,500 in gambling debts in Las Vegas.

Douglas County sheriff's Sgt. Jim Halsey says Walker was arrested Thursday at a Harrah's Tahoe cabaret bar on Lake Tahoe's south shore.

Deputies were notified of his presence by an employee who had seen a television report about an arrest warrant issued for Walker two days before.

Walker is accused of three felony counts of writing bad checks. Clark County prosecutors say he failed to make good on 10 checks totaling $1 million to Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood and the Red Rock Resort.

Walker has repaid $178,000 of the debts that were incurred from last July to January.

Walker was released from jail after posting $135,000 cash bail.
