LAS VEGAS — Tech billionaire and advocate of crime victims Henry T. Nicholas III is facing drug counts after being arrested along with a woman Tuesday at a Las Vegas Strip casino-resort.
Nicholas was arrested on suspicion of trafficking heroin, cocaine, meth and ecstasy, Las Vegas police officer Larry Hadfield said Thursday. He added police responded to the casino-resort following a report from security, which had found contraband in a room.
Nicholas’ attorney, David Chesnoff, told The Associated Press his team is doing its own investigation and will “deal with the facts in court.” Court records show Nicholas has been released on his own recognizance. (Get the full story at NBC News)
