Denver Broncos safety and Cheyenne High School product Quinton Carter is facing criminal charges over allegations he cheated during a craps game this past weekend at Texas Station.
Carter, 24, is charged in North Las Vegas Township Justice Court with three counts of commission of a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment.
According to an arrest report, a surveillance camera captured Carter adding $5 to his wager after the outcome of the roll was established on three occasions – at 10:04 p.m., 10:12 p.m. and 11:17 p.m. Saturday.
Casino security detained Carter, who was a fourth-round pick of the Broncos in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Carter told Metro Police he was playing craps but did not admit to illegally adding to his wager.
Carter started 10 games in his rookie season for the Broncos but reinjured his left knee in Week 3 of the 2012 season and spent the remainder of the year on Denver’s injury reserve list. He earned consensus All-America honors and first-team All-Big 12 Conference recognition after his senior season at the University of Oklahoma in 2010.
Carter has been recognized nationally by community service organizations for his work with at-risk children in both Las Vegas and Norman, Okla.
A Broncos spokesman said the team was looking into the matter.
Texas Station, modeled after the Lone Star State, is a AAA Three-Diamond rated hotel with 200 rooms, a casino, restaurants, bars and lounges, an entertainment showroom, a movie theater and a bowling center about six miles from the Las Vegas Strip.
It features 91,000 square feet of gaming space with more than 1,775 slots, 27 table games, a non-smoking poker room, a 500-seat bingo hall and a race and sports book.
The hotel has several dining options, from quick eateries to restaurants, including Austin's Steakhouse and Texas Star Oyster Bar. Some family-friendly features include an 18-screen movie theater and a bowling center.
South Padre provides live music weekly. The Dallas Events Center seats up to 2,000 people for concerts and other live performances.
