Banned man returns to casino after court

Police say a man banned from a Pennsylvania casino doubled down on a bad bet when he left a hearing for a defiant trespassing charge and headed straight to the same casino.

Forty-seven-year-old Chun Zhu is being held at Northampton County Prison following his arrest Wednesday at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem.

State police say Zhu, of Quincy, Mass., had been banned from the casino in July then was charged with defiant trespass after he visited it again on Sept. 4.

It was immediately after a hearing on that charge that investigators say he returned yet again with casino security on his tail.

Zhu is jailed on $5,000 bail. Court records don't list an attorney for him.
