Wynn Las Vegas has filed a lawsuit against NBA Hall of Famer and notorious gambling addict Charles Barkley, who allegedly has not repaid four $100,000 markers the casino lent him last October.
The casino also persuaded the Clark County district attorney’s bad check unit to open a criminal investigation. The unit has authority under state law to investigate gambling debts in the same manner as bad checks.
District Attorney David Roger said Barkley will be notified of the investigation and given an opportunity to make restitution to Wynn Las Vegas to avoid being charged with a felony.
