They said I had to come with them.

I tried over and over to let them know I had to go and I felt like they couldn't do this

They wouldn't let me walk out.

I felt like it was completely against my rights and not right yea

They wouldn't tell me what was going to happen.


I won't put the names of the places as of yet, and yes I seen it said audio and video surveillance .



Was it Luxor?

Luxor has a history with overly zealous and untrained security personnel.

An escalator's rubber hand rail is a safety device that they are required to inspect and maintain in good order. It is absolutely impossible for a person of normal strength to just reach out and dislodge it or separate it, much less to do it with one hand.

Do call a lawyer.

And remember, whenever you are in a situation where you are wondering if you should call a lawyer, the answer is YES.

I voted to forget it.

Number one, the casino could argue that you were not detained but went voluntarily and could have left at any time.

Number two, I think there is more to this story than you are telling us. I can't see just touching the armrest and the thing flies off. The fact that you didn't immediately ask to be compensated for the pain and suffering (I'm assuming) I think implies you were partially at fault.

Number three, I'm not saying everything goes the casinos way, but in Vegas the police and courts generally take the casino side in any dispute. This is evident in how I was blown off in my Freedom of Information act case.

Maybe some PI lawyer would take the case on and hope to get a small settlement because the casino viewed it as a nuisance case. However, that doesn't make it the right thing to do.

If you are going to act, you need to do so fairly quickly. The key to any case is of course the video and an attorney needs to file a request to have that evidence preserved. I would call Bob Nersesian. Although most of his cases involve advantage players, usually the key element is illegal detention, so if things really went the way you say, this would be right up his alley. If you don't have a case, he won't hesitate to tell you that.

I agree. I would also lay good money that is what he would say.

I too, think that may be the case. I also think there must be more to the story than we are hearing. But thing big thing is that video. The OP can't wait several weeks and then decide to take action. Also, if it REALLY went down the way the OP says, then metro's reaction or lack of reaction would be in his favor.

So what could she have done to not go with them? She would say no, then they would block her path with fifteen men. Then she has to climb over slot machines or try walking through them at which point they "react and attack"? How do you avoid the situation?

You pull out your cell phone and call the police. Illegal detainment is a very severe crime.
