Blackjack Armed Player Threatens The Dealer

20 Mar 2009

A gamble from Seattle was jailed and accused of threatening a blackjack dealer with a fake gun. In fact, it was not a gun, but a lighter in a shape of a gun.

In the police report it was said that the accused was playing blackjack in one of the Seattle casinos on Feb. 22 and became very irrate towards the dealer.

The player lost his bet and pulled out the weapon and threatened the dealer he would kill him for that bust card. The police arrested him and the player (his name is De Santiago) surrendered the lighter.

De Santiago was charged with felony harassment and remains in the King County Jail on $10,000 bail.
