Former NBA star Charles Oakley has been arrested in Las Vegas for attempting to cheat while gambling, US reports said Thursday.

Oakley allegedly tried to take back a $100 chip he had wagered after realizing he was going to lose, but it's not known what game the former Knicks star was playing at the casino. A security team subsequently reviewed video footage and determined he allegedly cheated, according to the report.

Oakley was arrested by Nevada Gaming Control Board Enforcement agents at The Cosmopolitan, a popular hotel in Las Vegas. If convicted he could face up to six years in prison. By the time of the 2017 incident, the relationship between the two parties had become more than hostile so Dolan had plenty of motive for wanting to embarrass Oakley.

Oakley now serves as a head coach in Ice Cube's three-on-three league, BIG3.

He was an All-Star in both 2015-16 and 2016-17, averaging 25.5 points and 6.1 points in those seasons combined. However, just months later he was traded to the Cavaliers in the deal that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston.

And after Hazard's impressive showings at the World Cup for Belgium he could be the man they turn to. If they hold off and Hazard fails to extend, they could lose out on precious millions.

He's most well known for his runs with the Chicago Bulls (1985-88), New York Knicks (1988-98), and Toronto Raptors (1999-2001).

The Knicks have been one of the worst National Basketball Association franchises of the last 15 years and Oakley's criticisms of the team and management has led to a strained relationship with the organization. Oakley was arrested by the NYPD and charged with three counts of assault for hitting security guards.

Oakley later filed a civil suit against the venue and Knicks owner James Dolan, claiming damages for defamation and slander causing emotional distress.

Oakley is the coach for the Killer 3s of the Big3 league now.
