Busted flush UPDATE

Prosecutor Larry Jegley issued fair warning. He said there was no way the National Poker Challenge could operate a game room legally in Little Rock. Ch. 11 reports that cops raided the WLR operation last night and made five arrests. Just because you can play poker for money at Oaklawn and Southland doesn't mean you can play poker for points -- and other considerations -- if you've paid for league memership. Or so Little Rock authorities are prepared to argue.

PS -- As a reader has noted, the poker league played with real cards, not on a machine as pictured here. The machine represents a legal activity in Arkansas -- poker gambling at Oaklawn and Southland -- not the allegedly illegal activity of card playing for points at the poker challenge club. 

UPDATE: LRPD news release on the jump.


Members of the Vice Detail, with the assistance of the Little Rock Police Department Intelligence Unit, served a Search and Seizure Warrant at NPC Poker, located at 9108 N. Rodney Parham, Suite #214, Little Rock, Arkansas.  The following individuals were arrested.  All were charged with Gambling Houses (B Felony).

 a. Logan Dungan, W/M, DOB: 08-13-69, of 3501 Nixon Rd., North Little Rock, Arkansas. Logan Dungan was charged with Gambling Houses (B Felony).
b.  Jodie Crawmer, W/F, DOB: 06-13-82, of 1307 S. Polk St., Cabot, Arkansas.    Jodie Crawmer was charged with Gambling Houses (B Felony).
c. Scott Grissom, W/M, DOB: 03-14-63, of 25 Carriage Creek Dr., Little Rock, Arkansas.  Scott Grissom was charged with Gambling Houses (B Felony).
