Connecticut Lawyer From Famed Jurist Family Busted For Cheating Casino!

Of course it happened at Foxwoods Casino, the world's #1 casino cheat haven, albeit at the MGM Grand part of the giant casino complex. And, believe it or not, it wasn't the typical bet-capping incident that amateur casino cheats fancy doing so much. The famous lawyer, identified as Walter Bansley IV (we have had suffix IIIs as casino cheats but this is the first time I am hearing of a IV!), has been charged with pinching (removing a losing bet from the layout) a $100 losing chip off a craps table before the dealer could rake it off the layout. No way is Bansley IV a professional or even moonlighting casino cheat. He probably just got pissed off losing or was drunk enough to do what he did.

So how is Bansley IV famous? That's because his father, Walter Bansley III (no casino-cheat arrests as far as I know...LOL) was the US Marine lawyer portraed by Tom Cruise in the film "A few good men." I bet Jack Nicholson, who played Cruise's adversary in the film, had a good laugh hearing about this!

Bansley IV was also charged with refusing to show proper identification and refusing to leave the casino floor when confronted by casino security.
