Going down without a fight

Former New York Knicks big man Charles Oakley pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct to resolve a case stemming from an alleged cheating incident last month at a Las Vegas casino.

Oakley was arrested in Las Vegas on July 7th and accused of committing,or attempting to commit, a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment, the Nevada Gaming Control Board said.

As a result of a plea bargain, Oakley will face no jail time. TMZ reports that Oakley was fined $1,000.
