Antoine Walker must really love his gambling

Seems as though Charles Barkley wasn’t the only one running up makers in Las Vegas. Antoine Walker also joined in on the fun. But unfortunately for “Employee #8,” he failed to make those markers good.

“The district attorney’s office has filed a criminal complaint against former NBA all-star Antoine Walker alleging he failed to pay back $822,500 in gambling debts at three Las Vegas casinos.

The complaint charges Walker, 32, who wants to return to the NBA, with three felony counts in passing $1 million in bad checks while taking out the markers at Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood and Red Rock Resort. By law, gambling debts in Nevada are handled as bad check cases.

According to a copy of the complaint obtained by the Sun, Walker obtained gambling markers by writing 10 separate $100,000 checks with insufficient funds at the casinos from July 27 to Jan. 19.

Six of the checks were made out to Caesars Palace and two each to Planet Hollywood and Red Rock Resort, the complaint says.”

Wonder what he was playing? Sometimes you have to know when to hold’em, know when to fold’em. Maybe I should listen to my own advice.

    Unbelievable, almost one million dollars in debt… Gambling is sopoused to be fun and exciting, entering a nice casino should be part of any visit to a nice city but always keeping in mind your limits.
