Denver Broncos safety Quinton Carter is facing felony charges after the Texas Station casino in Las Vegas accused him of cheating at craps.

Carter, 24, was arrested Thursday after he was allegedly videotaped adding a $5 chip to three bets after the dice already rolled.

After the incident, Carter tweeted: "Regarding the matter that allegedly occurred during a brief trip to my hometown of Las Vegas, I am fully confident that when the facts come out I will be cleared."

Carter faces three counts of committing a fraudulent act in a gaming establishment, a felony in Nevada that carries a possible sentence of one to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine. He was booked at the Clark County jail and released with a Monday court date.

Carter signed a four-year, $2.4-million deal after being drafted by the Broncos in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft.

Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth said that the team was aware of the matter and was gathering more information.
