Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter has found himself in some hot water after a wild weekend in Las Vegas that led to the three-year veteran facing felony charges. According to the Denver Post, Carter is facing the felony charges as a result of allegations that the Broncos cheated at a Vegas casino craps game last weekend.

Per the Denver Post report:

Carter was arrested late Saturday at the Palace Station after officials reported he added money to his bets after the dice had already rolled. Carter was charged with three counts of fraudulent act in a gaming establishment. Each charge carries a possible six-year prison sentence.

The Broncos are aware of the matter but have not yet released a statement.

Carter joined the league as a fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma in the 2011 NFL Draft and he has racked up 58 tackles and an assist.

The 24-year-old also faces a warrant charge after failing to complete counseling that stemmed from a marijuana charge in 2011. It will be interesting to see how the league office and Broncos handle the accusations.
