Authorities now have an arrest warrant for former major league pitcher Shawn Chacon as a result of his alleged failure to pay Caesars Palace $150,000 in gambling markers.
The 31-year-old Chacon — a onetime All-Star whose up-and-down career as a big league pitcher ended abruptly last year following a physical confrontation with the general manager of the Houston Astros — is facing a felony charge of passing three bad $50,000 checks in March, according to a copy of a criminal complaint obtained by the Sun . . . Gary Thompson, a spokesman for Harrah’s Entertainment, which owns Caesars Palace, said the company does not comment on pending litigation.
Pending litigation? Jesus, first Chicago can’t bribe anyone anymore, and now Vegas casinos are litigating this kind of business instead of breaking legs in private like God and Meyer Lansky intended. The whole damn world is going to hell in a handbasket if you ask me.
