Individuals cheating Horseshoe casino?
Dan Jovic Fox 8- Seven individuals have been indicted for cheating Cleveland’s new Horseshoe Casino. According to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason, the individuals cheated between the dates of May 22, 2012, and June 17, 2012. The charge of cheating while gambling is a fifth degree felony, according to the Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio Casino Control Commission. The following individuals were alleged to have been found cheating at the Horseshoe Casino; Nidal Abuaun, 49, of Lakewood, Nathaniel Emory, 40, of Cleveland, Russell Heidenreich, 46, of Cleveland, Aaron Higdon, 29, of Cleveland, Philip Koch, 54, of Lakewood, Theodore Shepherd, 53, of Cleveland, and Louis Wilkerson, 30, of Akron. The defendants were each caught cheating on various casino games such as Black Jack, Texas Hold’Em, Roulette and Craps. According to Mason the individuals cheated by either past posting, making a bet after the time allowed, capping/stacking a bet, adding chips to a bet after a good outcome is predictable, or removing bets on losing hands/rolls. Prosecutor Mason said, “Ohio now has statutes in place to address crimes committed in the new casinos. My office will continue to prosecute these crimes as we would any other crime in our County.” “From the very beginning we warned the would-be cheaters that our gaming agents, working under the Casino Control Commission, were all highly trained to spot casino crooks,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine. “These indictments show that if someone comes into one of Ohio’s casinos planning to cheat, they should think twice.” According to Caesars Gaming around 500,000 visited the Cleveland Casino in its first month of operation. Cuyahoga County officials estimate that tax revenue from the casino will total roughly $20 million a year.
"Magic Mike" movie showing creates a fight between two viewers
Bliss Davis Fox 8- Two women began fighting in a movie theater over whether one should have brought children to see the movie “Magic Mike” Sunday. Police say they responded to reports of an argument between the women at the Great Escape Theater at 175 Cherry Road in Massillon. Witnesses say one woman objected to the other woman bringing girls to see “Magic Mike,” a rated-R film about male strippers. While en route to the theater, officers say they received another call saying the argument had turned into a fight. According to the police report, an assistant manager and a witness, who is also a theater employee, one of the women “chest bumped” and slapped the other woman. Police arrested the suspect they say started the argument and transported her to Stark County Jail. They say a summons could not be issued because she is a California resident.
