WATERLOO - A man has pleaded guilty to cheating at a casino.

Shalen Edward House, 28, of Waterloo, pleaded to a single count of cheating at a gambling game Nov. 30 in Black Hawk County District Court.

He was sentenced to five years in prison suspended to five years of probation. A fine was suspended.

He also pleaded to a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from an Aug. 6 incident and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and one year of probation.

Authorities said House cheated by moving chips during a craps game at the Isle Casino Hotel Waterloo on June 14 after he was twice warned that doing so was breaking the rules.

He wasn't arrested until Aug. 27.

A week after the arrest, he was shot in the leg while he was outside apartments in the 1200 block of West Mullan Avenue.

No one has been arrested in connection with the shooting.
