Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter is accused of cheating while gambling at a Las Vegas casino.
According to a criminal complaint filed, Carter was playing craps at Texas Station Hotel and Casino early Sunday when he was caught adding $5 to his wager after the point had been established.
Security officers detained him and police were called to the property, where they arrested Carter.
Surveillance video shows Carter adding $5 to his wager two other times that night, according to his arrest report.
While Carter admitted to police he was playing craps, he denied adding to his wager.
Carter now faces three charges for commission of a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment, a felony in Nevada.
The 24-year-old safety is originally from North Las Vegas where he attended Cheyenne High School, going on to play for Oklahoma before being drafted by the Broncos.
According to the Denver Post, a Broncos spokesperson responded to the matter stating that the team was aware of the matter and gathering more information.
Carter took to his official Twitter account to comment on the case stating, " I am fully confident that when the facts come out I will be cleared."
