LAS VEGAS (AP) - A fight between two female blackjack dealers at a Las Vegas Strip resort sent one to the hospital and the other to jail.
KSNV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/12HtOle) 50-year-old Brenda Wilson is accused of stabbing the other dealer Friday night in a blackjack pit at the Bellagio hotel-casino.
The incident comes a week after an Illinois man shot and fatally wounded an ex-girlfriend in the hotel lobby at the Excalibur resort on the Strip, then killed himself there.
Wilson was booked into jail on charges of battery with a deadly weapon and mayhem with substantial bodily harm.
Authorities say the victim, whose name wasn't immediately released, was taken to the hospital with deep facial cuts. Her condition was unknown.
Police couldn't confirm whether the two dealers were working at the time.
