Cops, Crooks, and Celebrities from Brooklyn to Las Vegas takes us behind-the-scenes of casino life.

    No, he's at MGM/Mirage, and one of the finest execs. I know. The man never micro managed his staff like that shitbird ex Sheriff Jerry Keller did when the doors opened at the Wynn. Glad they got rid of that douche.
