There used to be a pool hustler tournament in Johnston City IL where Minnesota Fats lived - now held in Louisville KY. There was an "official" tournament and then in the back room gambling at pool and poker.

Minnesota Fats who had a habit of exaggerating went on KMOX radio in St Louis boasting about how much gambling was taking place. The FBI was apparently listening and they showed up and busted the place. They found a couple dozen handguns in trash cans, under bleachers etc.

Fats testified in court and they ended up dropping all charges when they realized most of the guys they busted pool players were broke and some of them slept in their car because they couldn't afford a hotel room.
