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

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

Oakley has been involved in a number of prior incidents in Las Vegas.

According to TMZ, Oakley was arrested Sunday evening at the Cosmopolitan casino after he tried to pull back a $100 chip when he realized he was going to lose while playing an undetermined table game.

"Mr. Oakley was suspected of adding to or reducing his wager on a gambling game after the outcome was known", the report said. After security confronted him, Oakley was taken into custody around 5:30 p.m.

"This is not a significant matter and we expect it to be resolved quickly", Oakley's attorney Alex Spiro told ESPN.

The No. 9 overall pick in 1985 out of Virginia Union, Oakley spent 19 years in the National Basketball Association. He has been estranged from the Knicks family over fights with team owner James Dolan, who threw Oakley out of the Garden in early 2017.

Oakley now is the head coach of the Killer 3's in Ice Cube's BIG3 League.

Oakley and prosecutors had agreed to a deal last August that the charges would be erased if Oakley stayed out of trouble for six months.

Oakley was charged with misdemeanor assault and trespassing, among other charges.
