An allegation that he added money to a craps table after the roll of the dice has resulted in three felony charges in Nevada for Broncos safety Quinton Carter, the Associated Press reported Thursday.
The alleged incident occurred at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, where he was arrested on Saturday. Per Nevada law, a first offense for committing fraud in a casino can result in a prison sentence of between 1-6 years and/or a fine up to $10,000.
The AP also reports that Carter faces a warrant after not finishing counseling in connection with a 2011 marijuana charge. According to the report, Carter pled guilty to the marijuana charge, a misdemeanor.
Carter, 24, was a fourth-round pick of the Broncos in 2011. He was limited to just three games (no starts) in 2012 because of a left knee ailment. The previous season, he made 10 starts for Denver, the bulk of which were at free safety. Rahim Moore got the call at free safety a season ago, and the Denver Post suggested in February that he will keep the role.
The Broncos said they are aware of the charges against Carter, the AP said.
Finally, it’s unclear what the industry term is for sneaking money onto the table when a game is in play. “Capping” the bet could be term. Or perhaps it is “pressing” your bet. I am not sure. I am sure of this much — casinos appear to take such allegations pretty seriously.
