READ: Ted Forrest Goes to Court

Ted Forrest
Sharelines
  • Ted Forrest makes his first appearance in court for theft and bad check charges.

Ted Forrest, six-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner, appeared in court Sept. 8 after he was charged with two felonies for theft and drawing and passing a bad check with the intent to defraud, reported the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Forrest had a warrant issued for his arrest Sept. 2.

After being booked at the Clark County Detention Center Thursday for a short amount of time, he appeared in court before Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Ann Zimmerman, who allowed him to be released, according to the Journal.

The charges are in relation to two checks he allegedly tried to pass (totaling $215,000) at the Wynn Las Vegas in 2012 and 2013 with insufficient funds, which Forrest signed a confession of judgement for in 2013 (stating that he owned the casino $270,000) and agreed to making monthly payments.

Forrest will return to court next month. More court records and information on the case can be found here.
