We told you about Carmen's Arcade advertising they give out cash prizes. The owner says that it is legal because money is going towards a charity and his machines were not 8-liners.
We spoke with the Brownsville Police Department showed them our footage and they say this is arcade is illegal.
We then called the owner of the Carmens arcade again. He says 100% goes towards a charity and says it's legal.
"There was a place in Brownsville that got in trouble, they got in trouble because they say did not have a charity, there has been a ruling so they they can ask the DA's office."
The Brownsville Police Department says the DA would have look at this matter before they take any action. We contacted the DA Office and they said they will be able to meetth us to look further into this. We tried calling the charity, Texas Community Foundation where the owner says the money is going towards. He was not unavailable for comment we will continue to follow this.
