Don't Exceed $10

The War on Betting had another success last night:

Baltimore Ravens cornerback Corey Fuller was charged with hosting high-stakes card games at his house, the site of a shootout three months ago.

He was released on $5,000 bail Tuesday night after a search warrant was served at the house. The felony charge carries a possible five-year state prison sentence and $5,000 fine.

State law allows card players to gamble up to $10 a hand, but sheriff's spokeswoman Linda Butler said Wednesday some pots were worth thousands of dollars, and games were held several times a week. [...]

The investigation began in February, and an undercover agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement attended some games.

Don't these guys have anything better to do than go around pretending they are poker players so they can arrest other poker players?
