Broncos' Quinton Carter charged with cheating at craps

NFL players make a lot of money, but sometimes they need more. A good way to get it isn't by cheating in a Vegas casino, though.

Broncos safety Quinton Carter was charged with three felonies after he was found adding money to a craps table after the dice were rolled in a Las Vegas casino, according to Pro Football Talk's Mike Wilkening.

Carter was playing at the Palace Station Hotel in Vegas on Saturday where he was arrested. According to Nevada law, the first offense for committing fraud in the casino could be up to a prison sentence between one and six years and a fine up to $10,000. Carter was also served a warrant for not finishing counseling that he was ordered to take after he was charged with marijuana possession in 2011, which he pled guilty to.

Carter was a fourth-round pick in 2011 by the Broncos out of Oklahoma and is a Las Vegas native. He signed a four-year, $2.495 million contract as a rookie last year, but that kind of money obviously hasn't been enough to make ends meet as he felt compelled to try to cheat a casino. While the Palace Station Hotel isn't likely the Bellagio or Ceasars Palace, the city is famous for being "cheater proof." Considering that Carter is a Vegas native, you'd think he would know better. It would also be interesting to find out whether or not this was his first time, or just the first time he got caught.

Carter should just be happy that he wasn't dragged out into an ally and beaten or buried in a corn field, or whatever happens in the Vegas mob movies. The new Vegas just calls the police. According to Wilkening, the Broncos are aware of the charges against Carter.
