Quinton Carter was arrested in Las Vegas for allegedly cheating at a casino. According to the Huffington Post on March 14, the Denver Broncos safety allegedly added chips to a bet in a game of craps after the dice had been rolled.
In Las Vegas, that constitutes a felony and Carter could face one to six years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
Quinton Carter, who played his college football for the Oklahoma Sooners, denied any wrongdoing when police arrived at the Texas Station casino and arrested him. He faces three counts of committing a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment because the casino alleges that he added a $5 chip to three different bets.
The $15 he added could add up to a lot of fines and possible jail time for the NFL player.
Carter, a rookie in 2011, missed the 2012 season with a knee injury. Quinton Carter was arrested during his rookie year as well for misdemeanor marijuana possession and he could be in more trouble based on a warrant for failing to complete his court required counseling after pleading guilty to those charges.
A court hearing is scheduled for Monday.
