Reche Caldwell charged with illegal gambling operation

Former NFL receiver Reche Caldwell has been arrested and charged with being a ringleader of an illegal gambling operation.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that Caldwell was among eight men arrested after officers raided a building in Tampa on Sunday afternoon.

Caldwell was charged with running an illegal gambling house and bookmaking. He was released early Monday on $4,000 bail.

A second-round pick of the Chargers in 2002, Caldwell played four years in San Diego, one in New England and one in Washington. He has been out of the league since the Rams cut him at the end of the 2008 preseason.

    Sports betting should be legal. That and legalized marijuana would get this country out of debt pretty quickly.

    Will never forget his O_O face after the Colts came back to beat the Patriots from 21-3 in the 2006 playoffs.

    I guess if you want to gamble you should get into the stock market or insurance business.

    Will never forget his dropped TD pass in that 2006 playoff game against the Colts. If Caldwell hadn’t dropped that pass, Peyton wouldn’t even have one ring.

    “I guess if you want to gamble you should get into the stock market or insurance business.”

    Yeah cause the majority of those white collar criminals actually get away with it.

    Ricochet-Reche Caldwell strikes again!

    I wonder if his eyes were as wide open upon being arrested as they were in that playoff game when he dropped that pass from Brady, lol.

    21-3? Try 38-34.

    he looks like he has been in prison for awhile. it was bound to happen.

  16. damnsureis says: Jan 6, 2014 4:47 PM

    Pretty sure any charges that are thrown at him will get dropped.

    His hyperthyroidism is under control I see.

  18. bospat says: Jan 6, 2014 5:01 PM

    Taking action for the Over/Under on his potential sentence for this “crime” at 6 months….

    They must have the wrong guy. I know this because every reject ever claimed by NE has turned into a future hall of Famer, been a bastion of decency and a rock in the community. At least according to the mythology and lore that is Bill Belichick, some members of the media (hello Peter King) and every BB sausage guzzling member of the Patriots fan club. It is the Patriot’s Way after all. Isn’t it?

    In todays time, gambling rings do not work. First guy who owes big, will rat you out to the FBI. He’s doesn’t pay, you go to jail.

    It’s 2014. It’s very simple. Go online.

  26. thegreatgabbert says: Jan 6, 2014 7:34 PM

    His own mother wouldn’t recognize Reche in that picture. At least that is what he was hoping.
