Poker tournament busted in Texas City at a nightclub owned by former Texas City Mayoral candidate Frank Skaggs.
Texas City police received a tip about the "Texas Hold 'Em" tournament planned for Dec. 5 at Shenanigans. They broke it up and arrested Skaggs, 71, and club manager Milessa Hill, 36, charging both with operating a gambling establishment.
Sgt. Brian Goetschius said the tournament was illegal because it was held in a public place. He said Skaggs charged participants a $20 entry fee, which was to go toward the winnings.
