The former NBA player is in some deep trouble after he got himself arrested at the Cosmopolitan earlier this week, accused of cheating during a game. TMZ Sports has learned … the ex-NBA star was arrested at the Cosmopolitan on July 8 after allegedly trying to pull a fast one during a gambling session — and it was all caught on video. Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board tell us Oakley “was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known.” Unclear what game he was playing at the time — but one source with knowledge of the incident says Oak tried to pull back a $100 chip after he realized he was going to lose.” It must be noted that Oakley made $46 million during his career in the NBA. “Oak was confronted about the incident — and it was kicked over to a security team which reviewed the casino video footage … confirming the alleged cheating. The 54-year-old was taken into custody at 5:30 PM and booked into Clark County Detention Center. Oak’s gambling charge is serious business — “to commit or attempt to commit a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment.” He faces between 1 to 6 years in prison if convicted. – TO
