This is barely sports related but has all the makings of a good story: gambling, the mob, Atlantic City's nicest casino, etc.

Authorities say they've busted an illegal
sports gambling ring run out of a poker room at an Atlantic City
casino.

A law enforcement official familiar with the case says 18 people
are under arrest, including six Borgota Hotel Casino & Spa
employees and four known mob associates from Philadelphia.

Part of the Merlino crime family has been implicated including at least one made man.  No word on whether Rick Tocchet was involved.
