This story is about law enforcement called to come to a poker tournament due to a complaint lodged by a poker player, but things turned awry instead for the one who called the cops.
The story was narrated by a poker player named William Givens, who won a bracelet in the 2014 WSOP $1,000 NLHE event for $306,634, his best live cash in his career by far. He was at the Golden Gates Casino in Blackhawk, Colorado on Monday, August 19, when he witnessed this somewhat normal scenario that ended up pretty strange yet funny.
Givens said a woman opened the betting in a hand, got raised and then called. After checking the flop, she tanked next when her male opponent made a bet. After 10 seconds of thinking, the man said he would show his hand if she showed hers.
It started as a kind of harmless trash talking at the table, but the woman suddenly responded that she would rather show him her ‘lady parts' prior to mucking her cards.
Givens then wrote that the exchange escalated, as the woman told the man her sensual offer was the closest he'll ever get to a woman, to which he responded to by commenting on her appearance that conveyed a hint of disgust. The woman felt insulted as Givens said, "she went nuts!"
Two hours later, the woman busted out of the tournament but then for some unknown reason, demanded to get a refund.
Most likely her demand for a refund got a resounding "no" from the management, so the woman called the police and wanted to press charges, perhaps on her opponent or the management, or both.
A few moments later, the cops arrived. The woman thought she got the upper hand! But as it turned out, she herself had outstanding warrants. Instead of getting the refund she thought she deserved and having someone get punished to her satisfaction, she was handcuffed and escorted out of the premises.
It has not been mentioned what were her outstanding warrants are - could be just minor misdemeanors or maybe even more serious charges. She either may have forgotten about them if they happened a long time ago or she was simply a fool to think that by calling the police on something or somebody else, she herself would not be apprehended. A lot of people think it is the latter.
Of course, this doesn't excuse the fact that the man she clashed cards with on the table has said some pretty awful things to her and that made her angry enough to call on the cops. However, most people think it sure is funny to see a person get their comeuppance for their arrogant behavior.
Lesson to learn here: If you have outstanding warrants, it's best to avoid calling police unless your life is in great danger.
