The Naked Bandit Ken Strauss from the WSOP is in prison due to an Act of Terrorism

WSOP Naked Bandit Ken Strauss in custody after casino threats

The Naked Bandit Ken Strauss, the player ejected from the World Series of Poker for his bizarre flashing and shoe-throwing antics at the table that went viral this month has been arrested for making threats and giving false information relating to terrorist acts…

The Naked Bandit Ken Strauss, aka kpittboy on Twitter, appears to have been arrested after making some seriously disturbed comments on social media over the past week, his threats quickly reported to the police…

That 2017 mention, of course, relates to the horrific Route 91 Harvest festival massacre that claimed 58 lives – gunman Stephen Paddock taking his own life after opening fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

This week, the poker community and others who know Strauss have been worried about his increasingly erratic behaviour, his social media meltdown revealing some serious mental issues.

How The Naked Bandit got his name

Strauss became one of the main talking points of this year’s WSOP Main Event after he dropped his pants, flashing his dick in the process, and then threw a shoe at the dealer.

His disqualification wasn’t the end of the story, 45-year old Strauss moving on to the Luxor and repeating parts of his act on top of a craps table before finally being arrested.

Strauss emerged from whatever crisis he was having at the WSOP when he pulled his dick out with a public apology…

…but barely two days had passed before he was showing signs that all was still not well…

Many of those following him on Twitter were becoming increasingly worried for Strauss’ own well-being, and scared that he might do something towards others…

It’s not clear yet just where and when Strauss was taken into custody, but a $20,000 bond was set and he is due to make an initial appearance in court this afternoon, Sunday 28th July:
