"Operating without security"? Is it a law that you have to have a very large black man next to you keeping you safe like Justin Beiber and the Jonas Brothers do when they are out walking around? If there's one law I never want to break, it's operating without security while in Las Vegas. Is that what you get a tear-drop for in prison?

Inappropriate my @$$. Why are folks so scared of offending someone ... get over it. It is what it is. If I want to say it or play it, I'm gonna say it and/or play it. If you don't like it, you can lump it!

This a symptom of a much bigger problem with this guy. A guy who runs a large part of Las Vegas doesnt get busted for DUI. Something else is going on ... ;-)

They don't get busted unless someone is there taking pictures.

Its too bad you're not hearing the positive about him. As an LV local I hear how hard he works, his big involvement in the community, he even sent out an apology - I dont think anything like this will happen again.

Why don't we focus on all of the positive things George Maloof has done. He has built a small empire, branded a vision, changed the whole flavor of Las Vegas. Now, how we love to tear the king off of the mountain once he has risen. This is the bigger problem. Why is the negative the first thing that arises when we google his name. If I messed up; as I am sure millions in America have, we would not be under this public scrutiny. All I can see is jealousy, envy, and bitterness. I am sure many would find 4 beers over a 6 hour period not that much to drink. About Ambien, he was surely not informed by his doctor the true power of this drug. I think we should have a class action suite against Ambien. This is not the first unbelievably tragic news I have heard around Ambien. Ambien users, beware.
