Criminal charges dismissed for Broncos safety accused of cheating at North Las Vegas casino

Court officials say charges have been dropped in a felony case alleging that Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter added $5 to craps bets after the dice were thrown.

Carter didn't appear Monday in North Las Vegas Justice Court while defense lawyer Andrew Leavitt arranged to have the third-year NFL player forfeit $1,000 in bail money as part of the agreement.

Leavitt says the 24-year-old Carter was never officially charged, and a court clerk confirms the case was dismissed with no felony or misdemeanor conviction.

Carter was arrested late March 9 at the Texas Station casino in North Las Vegas.

Security officers alleged he was videotaped adding $5 chips to three bets.

Leavitt says the video only shows Carter was confused, not that he intentionally increased his bets.
