    The penny slots proved to be quite profitable to a gambler at the Borgata.

    Authorities used a stun gun to subdue a Staten Island man who punched a display screen for a video roulette game at Monticello Casino and Raceway.

    The Times Herald-Record reports police responded to a call of a disorderly person at the casino around 9:45 p.m. Saturday.

    Police says the 44-year-old man punched the screen numerous times and destroyed it. It was valued at $6,600.

    The man was hit with a stun gun after police said he obstructed officers during processing. He faces charges including criminal mischief and obstructing governmental administration.
