Another bad turn for Charles Oakley. The former National Basketball Association player is in some deep trouble now after he got himself arrested at the Cosmopolitan earlier this week, accused of cheating during a game.

It is not known what he was playing, but according to TMZ, Oakley tried to take a $100 chip off the table once he realized he was going to lose. However, a source close to Oakley told TMZ that the issue was "an insignificant matter that will be quickly resolved". If convicted, Oakley could face between one and six years in prison, TMZ reports.

The incident came two days after Oakley coached the Killer 3's in a 51-49 loss to the 3 Headed Monsters at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

Former New York Knicks big man Charles Oakley was arrested in Las Vegas on Sunday for committing - or attempting to commit - a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment, the Nevada Gaming Control Board said in a statement provided to ESPN on Thursday. The league did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Security at the Cosmopolitan stopped Oakley, with the incident being recorded.

In court documents related to the lawsuits, obtained by Newsday previous year, the Aria said the 2010 skirmish merely was the latest example of bad behavior by Oakley in Las Vegas.

A security team confronted Oakley and after reviewing the casino video footage, he was booked into Clark County Detention Center. The case was settled in June 2014.
