ARRESTED AT A PITTSBURGH CASINO? CALL ZUCKERMAN LAW FIRM TODAY AT 412-447-5580
If you are charged with a crime based upon conduct that occurred inside of a Pittsburgh casino, you need to retain a qualified criminal defense attorney immediately. Casinos are staffed with specially trained security teams whose goal is to target and prosecute wrongdoers. To make matters worse, if there is surveillance video evidence of the incident, your case may be harder to defend.
WHERE THINGS GO WRONG AT CASINOS
There are numerous situations where a patron of a casino may find themselves charged with felony, misdemeanor and summary offenses.
Alcohol fueled conflicts can lead to fights and ejections from the casino. If you are intoxicated, you may find that security guards physically force you out of the casino, which can lead to minor and serious physical altercations. Even in these minor cases, you will likely be charged with numerous criminal offenses, including Harassment, Simple and Aggravated Assault, and Resisting Arrest.
Stealing chips, pocketing someone else's winnings, or writing bad checks are just some examples of financial crimes that occur rather frequently in casinos.
If a security guard sees you getting into your vehicle when you are intoxicated, they may contact the City of Pittsburgh Police to report that you are Driving Under the Influence of alcohol.
Those individuals who place themselves on the self-exclusion list, or those who have been kicked out of the casino on a prior occasion, may be facing serious trespass related charges.
