Charles Barkley Is In Some Hot Water Over Gambling Debt

Thursday, May 15, 2008

According to the Associated Press Charles Barkley will be in some trouble if he doesn't pay back a debt to Wynn, a casino in Las Vegas. So much so that he could be facing felony charges....

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A prosecutor says retired NBA star Charles Barkley will face felony charges if he fails to repay a $400,000 gambling debt to a Las Vegas Strip casino.

Clark County District Attorney David Roger says Barkley will get a chance to make restitution to Wynn Las Vegas to avoid felony bad check charges.

The casino alleges in court documents filed Wednesday that Barkley failed to repay four $100,000 casino markers, or loans, he received last Oct. 18 and 19.
When you gamble $2.5 Million dollars away in a 6-hour period (as Barkley admitted) you should be able to cover $400K, but that could also be the reason you wouldn't be able to. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

Can we start a pledge drive to bail Chuck out? TNT should be all over this because trust me, I am not staying up for NBA games at 1:00 in the morning if Chuck(les) isn't there to make redic statements...

About the only thing Barkley did as well as Jordan was gamble away money.
