Poker player Layne Flack, scheduled to participate in this past weekend's National Heads-Up Poker Championship, was arrested on Friday morning and replaced by David Oppenheimer last minute.

Layne was charged with a DUI but he has since denied his blood alcohol level was above zero.

Officer Barbara Morgan of the Las Vegas Police Department told Gambling911.com it's an "ongoing investigation".

"Prior to this arrest Mr Flack had no criminal history in our Jurisdiction," she told us, put was unable to release the police report at this time. 

Flack had reportedly kicked his substance abuse habits but WickedChopsPoker.com claimed that the poker pro had been boozing it up just last weekend at another party event.

Furthermore, an individual by the name of Andrew Robi reported on his website that he enjoyed tequila shots with Flack at a party this past weekend.

"I was admittedly quite drunk and somehow convinced the legendary Layne Flack to take shots of tequila with me. I was not thinking straight, so it was not the most responsible idea to convince someone who has had his battles with his vice demons to jump back into the hell of temptation. We ended up getting quite drunk and I went home to get some sleep while his night continued. This afternoon, I was alerted to a 2+2 gossip post that revealed that Flack was arrested for a DUI and had to forfeit his tournament entry. I feel pretty guilty about it. As anyone who knows Layne knows he is a super nice and charismatic guy regardless of the mistakes he made."

That post has since been removed, but not before being posted across the Web.

Officer Morgan was not exactly sure when the police report would officially be released but she did make it abundantly clear:  "I can confirm that on March 6th, Layne

Flack was arrested for : Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle, Basic Rule-Speed, DUI Liquor. "

Whether he is found guilty or not of each offense remains to be determined. 

The police report will be available once the case has been adjudicated.
