Scott Montgomery becomes Victim of Robbery at the Bellagio

The problem with going to casinos is that there’s always a measure of danger lurking in the corners. Even the biggest ones, with the tightest security, can mess up at certain points and hell might just break loose. Scott Montgomery was unfortunate enough to fall victim to a robbery at the restroom in the Bellagio, in which a total of $2,000 was stolen from him. He was, however, fortunate to get out with nary a scratch, which is more than we can say for other victims of robberies.

The Story

Montgomery was attending the preliminary events for the annual Festa al Lago when the incident happened. He got mugged in the restroom in Bellagio but the perpetrator was not caught, he recounted the event in his twitter account, saying “Got mugged today at Bellagio. Black guy pulled a knife on me in the restroom. I gave him the $2k in my wallet and he left.” He followed it up with a tweet saying that he called up security but they took fifteen minutes to respond, so the thief walked away free. He even called security ‘useless twits’ and said that they did not even ask him to look at the camera footage of the event. He also said that he was ‘less than impressed with the player precautions at the Bellagio, commenting “security pretty much just said oh well, life sucks, have a nice day.”

Of course, it might be too early to call the security at the Bellagio useless because, who knows, they might be doing something right now to rectify the situation. The situation with Montgomery is reminiscent of the incident that happened way back in 2004 when Main Event Champion, Greg Raymer, got mugged outside his hotel room. He even tried to fight off the two men who attacked him. It was a good thing, then, that officials were able to catch the offenders later on.

People’s Opinions

Of course, the incident sparked the interest of several people on TwoPlusTwo. As usual, they were of different opinions. Some were saying that Montgomery ought to feel lucky that he lived to tell the tale, while others were of the opinion that the Bellagio should take responsibility for this incident. It really is surprising, though, that the Bellagio’s performance at this security breach was so poor, their reaction time too slow. For such a high profile casino where the biggest tournaments are held, the Bellagio should have shown more efficiency.
