Note To Self: Don't Park Car in Casino Lobby

A Ringgold man is charged with assault for driving his car through the glass doors of Tunica's Gold Strike Casino and doing doughnuts in the lobby.

Authorities said no one was injured during the Monday morning joyride.

Tunica County sheriff's deputies are holding Robert Leon White without bond.

White is charged with seven counts of aggravated assault, assault on a law officer, reckless driving, disorderly conduct, failing to comply, and disturbing the peace.

Security guards stepped in to pull people out of the way of the vehicle and held White until the Sheriff's Department arrived.

Once the car came to a stop, White remained in the car and waited for the authorities, said Casino spokeswoman Mary Cracchiolo.

It remained unclear late Monday why White did it, she said.

“He'd been at Horseshoe Casino just before the crash,” Cracchiolo said. “He had also been at the Gold Strike's poker tables earlier in the evening.”
