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.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.
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.
