Playing in the casino is great fun. However, gambling addictions are a dark side to this activity. Sometimes a gambling addiction can get out of hand. In the United States a 52-year old man wanted to gamble so much that he even robbed a bank for it. After the robbery, he simply returned back to the gambling table like nothing had happened.
Kerry Johnson from Charleston really loves to gamble. The only problem is that sometimes he is completely broke. Normal people would quit the game and go home, but not Johnson. He had a special plan in mind. After going completely broke during a Blackjack game, Johnson decided to rob a bank. He even placed a chip to keep his chair occupied!
The 52-year old gambler apparently robbed the National City Bank. He gave a note to one of the employees of the bank, which read that he carried a bomb and a weapon. After receiving the money the man returned back to the casino. However, the police quickly identified the robber. Charges have been filed against the man, who can be sentenced to jail for 10 to 20 years.
