Former NBA Star Antoine Walker was arrested on Wednesday night at a pairings party for the American Century Championship in South Lake Tahoe.

Walker was taken into custody in Harrah's Casino. He was led out in handcuffs, and his bail was set at $135,000.

A warrant was issued on Tuesday for Walker's arrest stemming from $822,500 in gambling debts owed to three Las Vegas casinos.

Reports say that Walker wrote bad checks totaling $1 million to Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood and the Red Rock Resort. He has since paid back just $178,000.

Walker was an All-Star with the Boston Celtics, and won an NBA championship in 2006 with the Miami Heat.

Walker had planned in competing in the Celebrity Golf Tournament which begins on Friday.
