Ohtani paid the bookie directly instead of funneling the money through the interpeter? My Pete Rose spidey sense is driving in overdrive here. Is the interpeter just a fall guy for Ohtani's out of control gambling? Ugh.

From the linked story I learned something I didn't know: if you are accused of a crime at a tribal gaming establishment, your case will be heard in a tribal court.
