Antoine Walker Passed $1M In Bad Checks

I think that if were ever going to write a bad check, the company or organization least likely to be on that list would be a Las Vegas casino. Apparently though NBA player Antoine Walker does not share my same aversion to getting on the wrong side of a Vegas casino. Three Las Vegas casinos gave Antoine credit at their casinos. Apparently he is not a very good gambler and promptly lost $1M. No problem right? Antoine just wrote the three casinos checks to make good his losses.

There was one slight problem however. It turns out there were no funds in his account to cover the checks. So, now he has been turned over to the cops. According to TMZ, Walker was charged with three felonies. The three casinos he passed the bad checks to were Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood and Red Rock Resort.

He has made good on some of the amounts owed, but still owes the casinos a little over $800K. But you know what, he got to drink for free and they probably gave him a coupon for a free buffet at some point, so the $1M and the possible jail cell that awaits him was probably worth it. TMZ says he is a former NBA player. I thought he still played for Memphis, but I could be wrong. I would gather though he is really, really going to want to play next year to cover those debts.

do casinos still 'bust a knee cap' if you keep giving them the run around?

Nah, I think you just get threatened with a Chriss Angel makeover.

Wasn't there a blind about an NBA player with serious debt in the last month or two? Most guessed Iverson, I think.
