Update: Wynn Sez Barkley Hasn't Paid Yet

Hot off the AP wire:

Charles Barkley insists the check is in the mail, but a Nevada prosecutor and a Las Vegas Strip casino want the retired NBA star to show them the money. "He hasn't paid, and he hasn't contacted anyone at the casino or the DA's office," Deputy Clark County District Attorney Bernie Zadrowski said Tuesday. Zadrowski leads the bad-check unit handling the $400,000 gambling debt Barkley owes to the Wynn Las Vegas resort.

"We don't have any facts that would cause us to drop our lawsuit," said Jennifer Dunne, spokeswoman for the casino, which filed a civil complaint May 14 in Nevada state court alleging Barkley failed to repay four $100,000 casino markers, or loans, received last Oct. 18 and 19.

What's the over under on Barkley going to jail?



Comments & Discussion:

Do you think they will let him share a jail cell with O.J. Simpson?

Barkley once said on the Jim Rome show that they only put poor people in jail. Draw your own conclusions from that.

Point negated by the recent sentencing of that Backstreet Boy manager. That said, he hasn't been put behind bars, yet.

If he goes to jail they are even less likely to collect? I would imagine they'd rather have him working so he can pay off those ill fated rolls at the big boys crap table.
