Ex-Gang Boss Gets OK To Gamble In Atlantic City

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A man who once was one of the top three leaders of a notorious Chinese street gang in New York that dealt in drugs, illegal gambling and other vices can now gamble in Atlantic City casinos.

Robin Chee said he’s a changed man and “a model citizen.” He was once one of the three top leaders of the Ghost Shadows.

The state Casino Control Commission on Wednesday removed Chee from a list of people barred from the casinos because of organized crime ties.

The panel had already issued a preliminary ruling in his favor, noting he has stayed out of trouble since his 2003 release from prison.

The state Division of Gaming Enforcement says it can find no evidence of gang ties since Chee got out.

    Yea he has changed. So long as leash was on he was model citizen. i am sure we will be hearing from him again in the next few years after his stash money from extorting the merchants in Chinatown runs out. Send him to Vegas..Where what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
