Celtics fans have seen him take bad shots, make bad passes, commit bad fouls and play bad defense. But in his latest act, Antoine Walker has stooped to a new low as the former All-Star is being accused of passing bad checks in Las Vegas.
According to the Las Vegas Sun,
the district attorney’s office has filed a criminal complaint against
the former C’s star, alleging he failed to pay back $822,500 in
gambling debts at three Las Vegas casinos.
The 32-year-old is being charged 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, after he obtained
gambling markers by writing 10 separate $100,000 checks with
insufficient funds at the casinos from July 27 to Jan. 19.
Walker played in Boston for seven-plus seasons, making the NBA
All-Star game in 1998, 2002 and 2003. In his 12-year NBA career, Walker
has brought in close to an estimated $100 million dollars, including $12.375 million with the C’s during the 2002-03 campaign.
By law, gambling debts in Nevada are handled as bad check cases.
