We get more from the Associated Press:
Former NBA star Antoine Walker faces three felony counts of writing bad checks to Las Vegas casinos last year, the Las Vegas Sun reported on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old, who played in 2008 for Minnesota, won an NBA title with Miami in 2006 and was an All-Star playmaker for the Boston Celtics.
Walker is accused of writing 10 bad checks worth a total of one million dollars to three casinos. Prosecutors said Walker repaid 178,000 dollars of what he owed but still faces criminal charges for the remaining 822,000 dollars.
The debts were undertaken from last July to this past January.
“The NBA where bad checks happen” All kidding aside, how does Antoine Walker write bad checks? I’m assuming that he has at least accumulated over one million dollars in his playing career to not have to write bad checks.
However, in this tough economic time it would not surprise me for someone to sink to that level. Just not, Antoine Walker.
Long Live the Shimmy!
