9 Men Arrested In South Florida Pee Wee Football Gambling Ring
I’ve heard of big time sports betting, but this has to be an all time low.
The Miami Herald is reporting that 9 men, most of them pee wee football coaches, have been arrested by the authorities for gambling on youth football games and setting point spreads.
Broward County sheriffs officials searched two gambling houses Monday, and reports are that people there were betting on college and youth games.
The nine men were reportedly charged with bookmaking, and others with keeping a gambling house.
Authorities say the men arrested had direct ties to the Florida Youth Football League, and most had criminal histories.
their reportedly is a league website that has 22 clubs and 6,000 children of all ages in three counties.
