Antoine Walker – Gambling Debt of $822,500?

Las Vegas prosecutors have filed a criminal complaint against former Boston Celtic player Antoine Walker because of a gambling debt, $822,500 to be exact, that has not been paid back to three Las Vegas casinos.

Walker reportedly owes $1 million combined at Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood and Red Rock Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 32-year-old allegedly wrote 10 bad checks for a combined total of a cool $1 million, six checks for $100,000 were made out to Caesars Palace, two checks for $100,000 made out to Planet Hollywood, and two $100,000 checks made out to Red Rock Resort.

Chief Deputy District Attorney Bernie Zadrowski stated that Walker has paid back some of the debt, but $822,500 is still owed. Walker faces three felony counts in writing bad checks. A warrant has now been issued for his arrest. His attorney, Jonathan Powell, declined to comment on the case.

Okay readers, leave your comments and tell me your thoughts. Where in the world did his money go? A source told the Memphis Commercial Appeal that he was paid out around 95 percent of his remaining $9.3 million salary with the Grizzlies last December.

    Has Antione lost his mind owing that much money to casinos? He has the money, but doesn’t want to give it up, but he will now since warrants have been placed out on him. If he did not have the money to play, then he should have left the building! Idiot!

    he should be treated like anybody else that did the same thing, and broke the law. (3 felony counts, writing bad checks.)
    he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law! Barred from casino’s.(he proved he can’t act right?).
    pay lawyer fee’s, court cost. reimbursement of the gambling debt, plus interest.
    if he would have won. he would be bragging. he lost so do the right thing……pay!
    that’s part of the game…….also!

    Sounds like another ex-jock with the typical jock attitude that somehow the normal rules of finance don’t apply to them. Do a Google search on Lenny Dykstra to read about an extreme case of ex-jock syndrome. One day people will realize that athletes are just that — athletes and in many cases very flawed human beings.

    Be careful. Many people go broke; not just atheletes. Many were shocked to hear Ed McMahon was in financial ruin. It can happen to anyone. Still others are untrustworthy (crooks), such as the Madoff scandal and perhaps some casinos.

    His money went where every other celebrity’s money goes – excess living and poor money management.

    Hated to hear it. We love Antoine in Kentucky.
