Former NBA forward Charles Oakley was arrested Sunday after he was caught on camera allegedly cheating at the Cosmopolitan, a Las Vegas casino. Playing alongside Patrick Ewing in New York, Oakley would go on to earn an All-Star selection and an All-Defensive first team nod while establishing himself as one of the NBA's toughest rebounders.

Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board told TMZ that Oakley "was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known".

A source told TMZ Oakley tried to take back a $100 chip after learning he was going to lose the game.

Security at the Cosmopolitan stopped Oakley, with the incident being recorded. In a statement to ESPN, Oakley's attorney said "This is not a significant matter and we expect it to be resolved quickly". Oakley was booked into the Clark County Detention Center without incident, the board said.He is scheduled to appear in court August 7.

Oakley's Las Vegas arrest comes after a high-profile spat with the Knicks previous year following his forcible ejection from Madison Square Garden during a game in February. He would face one to six years in prison if convicted of fraud at a gaming establishment.

Oakley was arrested on three counts of assault for his fight with the security guards and another for criminal trespassing.

Oakley, 54, played 19 seasons in the National Basketball Association, most notably as a key contributor to the Knicks over 10 seasons. Criminal charges were dismissed in February of this year, but Dolan has banned Oakley from Madison Square Garden for life.
