Cheyenne High graduate Quinton Carter talks to youth football players during his free camp last May. Through his non-profit, Carter hosts camps and does other projects for low-income families in Las Vegas and Oklahoma, where he played college football. He was a fourth-round draft pick in April of the Denver Broncos.

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.
