Never Threaten A Blackjack Dealer

03 Apr 2009

One Seattle gambler probably never expected anything bad from his casino visit. He wad playing Blackjack when he got angry at a dealer for receiving a bust hand. He could not think of anything else as to threaten the dealer with a weapon. In fact, this was not a weapon, but a lighter shaped like a gun.

This happened on Feb. 22 at one of the Seattle casinos.

The bet was lost, and the player pulled out the imitation of a weapon. He threatened to kill the dealer for that bust card. The police arrested the player shortly and he surrendered the lighter.

The felon (De Santiago) remains in the King County Jail on a $10,000 bail with felony harassment.
