A woman has been arrested on four counts of battery after a viral video showed her climbing onto a craps table and throwing chips at guests at a local casino, according to the Reno Police Department. 

The video shows 63-year-old Rebecca Castillo climbing onto a craps table at the Silver Legacy Casino in Reno at around 5 p.m. on June 15. 

Castillo then started throwing chips at bystanders and casino staff before security stepped in, detained her, and turned her over to the police. 

The viral video, posted by TikTok user “cbomobfather,” has already gained nearly 5,000 likes and more than 600 comments. 

Comments on the video joke about the incident, with one user noting that instances like this are not unusual. Another user even compared the event to a heist distraction, referencing the popular film "Ocean’s Eleven."

The Reno Police Department has not provided any further details about the incident or what led Castillo to climb onto the table, but they did confirm that she is facing four counts of battery. 

In the state of Nevada, battery without causing injury is classified as a misdemeanor. Actions such as spitting, shoving, pushing, slapping, or other physical altercations can be considered battery. Still, the penalty for battery can include up to six months in jail alongside a fine of up to $1,000. 

Court records indicate that Castillo is scheduled for a sentencing hearing on Thursday.
