Former WCW & TNA Star Arrested; Illegal Gambling Operation

Late Monday night during a gambling bust involving high stakes no limit hold-em poker in Roswell, Georgia, former TNA and WCW star Disco Inferno Glen Gilberti was among those arrested. For six months now, local police have been investigating the gambling ring after several complaints from neighbors about the amount of people coming to and from the home.

Gamblers would have to pay a fee of $10,000 to get into the game with the basement of a home on Nesbit Ridge Drive converted to look like a casino. Players would sign up and pay a $10,000 entrance fee online, then receive an invitation to location of the game. A game was ongoing during the bust with some found holding poker chips and waitresses serving drinks.

Roswell police Sgt. B.C. Brackett told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "I've been with the city for going on 27 years, and I've not seen an operation like this in my tenure."

Twenty-seven people were arrested with two, Gilberti and an accomplice, charged with felony gambling charges. The others were expected to be charged with misdemeanors. 20 cars, one of which contained over 200 ecstacy pills, were also impounded.

The gambling bust made all of the local newscasts and newspapers in the Atlanta market, but at this point, Gilberti's past as a professional wrestler has not been noted.

Gilberti, doing his 1970s Disco throwback character as a takeoff of John Travolta in "Staying Alive" was a regular with World Championship Wrestling from the mid-1990s to the end of the company when it was sold to World Wrestling Entertainment in 2001. Gilberti became a TNA regular and was with the company for much of its run in Nashville, TN as a weekly PPV series. He received a tryout as an agent for TNA last year as well but wasn't hired for the position.

Nationally, Gilberti was last seen wrestling Koko B. Ware as part of the World Wrestling Legends PPV in Orlando, Florida in March 2006.
