Illinois bar owner arrested for illegal gambling machines
HEYWORTH -- A business owner in the central Illinois community of Heyworth is facing felony charges after authorities say he had seven illegal video gambling machines in his bar.
Authorities tell The (Bloomington) Pantagraph that David Rehker's case is the first in McLean County since the state approved video gambling last year.
Rehker was released on bond after investigators seized the machines from Circle II Bar and Grill. No telephone listing for him could be found.
Video gambling became legal in bars, clubs and truck stops in October. But business owners are required to get a license for the games and have to replace their old machines.
