Alex Rodriguez’s involvement in a high stakes poker game at a private Beverly Hills mansion may end up costing the star Yankee at least two regular season games.
The game allegedly happened at the home of a record producer where open cocaine use was encouraged and violence was threatened when one player lost “more than a half-million dollars” according to an inside source.
A league spokesman told ESPN:
“We’re taking this very seriously,” and “Because he had been warned about this before, I would say a possible suspension would be very much in play.”
Another spokesman added to USA Today that the star player will be summoned for an interview.
The original report by The Star said people in attendance included Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck, all regulars to the underground poker circuit.
