Antoine Walker Was Arrested

‘Toine went from bad shots, to bad checks: “Antoine Walker was arrested in Harrah’s Casino in South Lake Tahoe, Nev., on Wednesday night. Walker was led out of the building in handcuffs, and is in Douglas County Jail with bail set at $87,000. Walker is accused of three felony counts of writing bad checks. County prosecutors say he failed to make good on 10 checks totaling $1 million written to Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood and the Red Rock Resort.”

    If there’s a warrant out for you in NEVADA for not paying with good checks… of course, the BEST thing one could do, would be, OH, let’s see, GAMBLE… in, NEVADA!
    Why didn’t I see this was his plan in the first place… duhhh? It was so OBVIOUS.

    Maybe he thought the checks were like three pointers, and that if he kept writing them, one would go through

    Didn’t this dum dum say he was going to change his life after he got robbed in his house a year or so ago? What is he thinking? Well…..actually, he’s not.

    I know he writes a lot of bad checks, but it was pretty comically seeing him shimmy everytime he wrote one which didn’t bounce

    Should’ve stayed in Memphis. Could’ve gambled in Tunica.

    I feel sorry, for dude, but damn, it’s not like gambling more is going to reduce the debt. That’s like taking half-court shots and thinking that they’re 4 point baskets, instead of normal 3 pointers. urgh.

    @Felix: GOLD!!! I’m killing myself over here on that line!

  • nicko

    doin the shimmy all the way to jail…what a lardass

    For the life of me none of this makes any scence what so ever. I am also getting an erie feeling that he has blown 100 million career dollars. Makes me sick.

    Slam is eating my comments. C’mon…

    Damn, Antonie needs to get his stuff together. He might not even be broke, some athletes are just not on top of their finances and writing checks from the wrong account.

    Walker’s career earnings were $99 million. And that isn’t even counting any endorsements he got.

    Jeff: … did he have endorsements?

  • money

    adidas at the beginnig of his “career”. wouldnt it be cool if he would get a deal with partypoker or some like that now?

  • Steve McGillicutty

    Maybe Antoine is a stupid idiot. Or maybe he has a gambling addiction, in which case instead of being a stupid idiot he’s an addict and unable to help himself. But it’s more fun to laugh at him, so never mind. Ha ha, people with ruined lives are funny!

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    Jukai, I’m pretty sure that Adidas were throwing some money at him. Guys, relax. It’s not because he made checks from an empty account that he is broke.

  • http://adfji.com Jukai

    Z: He just got arrested, dude! Hard to sort of downplay the thing.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Blinguo

    He did have some adidas “feet you wear” BBall shoes, but you might not be able to track down a ton of people who wanted Antoine’s set shot 3 feet. He could have stayed away, or made a public announcement like Barkley did saying they overblown it, and he was trying to pay, there was just some misnomer hangups that weren’t reported. But then again maybe its just all negative and true nor does he have a really public forum to speak on it without it getting sensationalized, unlike Charles with TNT.

  • Randy Brown

    Antoine Walker is dumb, even for an athlete. That’s, like, the worst thing

    They already exist Tarzan – thats what you would expect a decent manager can do for you. Manage your money appropiately…

    It’s safe to say Antoine Walker isn’t going to win “smartest dude of the year” award. He obviously needs help with his gambling addiction. kh
