Sounds like someone has a real problem.
Back in 2009, Steve Wynn sued Girls Gone Wild exec Joe Francis for over $2 million, claiming that Joe owed that much in gambling debts. Steve won the case and Joe was ordered to pay up.
Fast forward to two years later and Steve hasn't seen a red cent from Joe. So, he's kicking things up a notch.
Though Joe maintains he was offered a discount on his losses, because he refused to pay his debt, a Vegas grand jury has ordered Joe to stand trial against two criminal charges: Felony theft and fraud.
If he is found guilty, he faces up to four years in prison.
But Joe doesn't sound too worried. After all, he has evaded going to prison before. He's told sources:
"I'm 100% confident that I will prevail, just like I always do. Steve Wynn has enormous influence over the politicians in the Las Vegas area … so I'm sure he's behind this. The moral of the story is don't gamble at the Wynn casinos or this could happen to you."
No, we're pretty sure this could only happen to you! Good luck though!
