Shutting down the competition

Why wasn't this man in a casino or bingo parlor or at a horseracing park or lottery ticket outlet where he belonged?

Indianapolis metropolitan police arrested a second man they say was running illegal shell and card games during the Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration.

Willie Dent, 40, Jackson, Miss., was issued a court summons for gambling after police say he admitted running illegal games at the corner of Georgia and Meridian streets about midnight on Saturday.

There's illegal gambling? Who knew? Bet he was offering much better odds than the lottery does.
