#6- Bitar Turns Himself In
After a couple years of living on the lam in lovely Dublin, Ireland, Full Tilt CEO Ray Bitar returned to the good old USA to face gambling and money charges. Industry insiders speculated that Bitar’s return was mandated by the DOJ as part of Full Tilt’s sale to PokerStars.
Whatever the case, Bitar didn’t look too put out in his very memorable mug shot and quickly posted a $2.5 million bail bond and is currently awaiting trial in his home state of California.
