Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter faces cheating charges
LAS VEGAS — Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter faces felony charges related to his arrest for cheating at a Las Vegas casino.
Officials with the Nevada Gaming Control say Carter was arrested on accusations he cheated at a craps game at the Texas Station casino. It happened late Saturday night.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say in the declaration of arrest document that Carter added $5 to his wager three different times after the outcome of the game was known.
Carter, 24, faces three counts of fraudulent act in a gaming establishment. Each charge has a possible prison sentence of up to six years.
Las Vegas police booked Carter into the Clark County Jail and then released him.
The Denver Post reports Carter faces a warrant charge in an unrelated case. It accuses him of not completing counseling following his guilty plea in a misdemeanor marijuana possession case in 2011.
Carter played in the first three games for the Broncos last season after playing in all 16 games and two playoff games in his rookie year of 2011.
Denver Broncos officials say the team is looking into Carter’s situation.
