Officials from the Nevada Gaming Board told TMZ that the 54-year-old Oakley 'was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known'.

According to TMZ, Oakley was arrested Sunday evening at the Cosmopolitan casino after he tried to pull back a $100 chip when he realized he was going to lose while playing an undetermined table game.

Charles Oakley reportedly tried to pull a fast one at a Las Vegas casino earlier this month, and the former National Basketball Association star is now facing charges because of it.

In May 2011, Oakley filed a lawsuit against the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas for an alleged "gang-style beat down" by security in 2010.

Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigns as chairman after using N-word
The marketing agency, identified as Laundry Service , later severed its ties with the pizza chain, Forces reported. Schnatter also resigned Wednesday from his vice chairman post on the University of Louisville Board of Trustees.

The felony count carries between one and six years in prison and a $10,000 fine. However, a source close to Oakley told TMZ that the issue was "an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved".

Oakley's Las Vegas arrest comes after a high-profile spat with the Knicks a year ago following his forcible ejection from Madison Square Garden during a game in February. Oakley got in a fight with a security guard, causing a pause in the game, before being dragged away. It didn't involve any current members of the organization, but rather, it was centered around beloved former big man Charles Oakley.

Oakley played for the Knicks from 1988 until 1998, helping them reach the 1994 NBA Finals alongside Patrick Ewing, John Starks, the late Anthony Mason and head coach Pat Riley. Dolan suggested Oakley was drunk and heckling him, and Oakley was arrested for assault, harassment and trespassing.
