James Packer, the Australian casino tycoon, reportedly got into a physical fracas with a worker at his Melbourne casino after the security personnel apparently could not recognize him. A report from a leading British daily stated that the security personnel did not allow Packer as well as another executive into an undisclosed part of the casino on day of the New Year’s that prompted James to shout and push him aside, alleged the worker.
However, the casino portrayed the whole incident in a different way. In a statement, a spokesperson stated that a contract security officer, working inside the resort was radioed that one of Crown’s most important VIPs was approaching his position, but failed to recognize Mr. Packer, moving in front of him to attempt to physically block him from entering the casino and causing a collision. It is understood that a verbal altercation ensued and Mr. Packer continued into the facility.
On the other hand, the security personnel, sixty year old Iskandar Chaban stated that he went to the hospital following the incident.
