LAS VEGAS – An ex-con charged for robbing a Las Vegas casino and using the money to lavish on hookers and bribe a tourist in booking a hotel was wheeled in court with a spit mask around his neck and a blanket over his body.
Scott Carmitchel, 34, was ordered to appear in Clark County Justice Court “by any force necessary” after the suspect reportedly refused to cooperate with authorities.
“Carmitchel has refused to cooperate in any way with the investigation and was combative with officers throughout the booking process,” told an officer
During his appearance, the felon from Kansas did not open speak or open his eyes. An officer also had to hold the suspects head in position for the mug shot.
Based on the police report, Carmitchel robbed a casino cashier at Bellagio on Friday and fled with $43, 500 on hand. He was arrested the next day, after a tip off that he was socializing with hookers at the Hard Rock resort.
Carmitchel was charged with one count of interference with commerce by robbery at the Bellagio and one count of armed bank robbery at a City National Bank along East Tropicana Avenue.
According to Deputy Public Defender Mike Wilfong, a “social worker” would be needed in preparation of Carmitchel’s defense.
