LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Wisconsin man who won nearly $1.2 million at a Las Vegas sportsbook after Tiger Woods' victory at The Masters this past weekend reportedly has a dark past.

James Adducci has a long criminal past, according to a USA Today report.

Court records show the 39-year-old pleaded guilty to misdemeanor domestic abuse charges four times in the last 10 years. He was also arrested several other times for similar domestic violence incidents but those charges were either dismissed or changed to lower-level misdemeanors.
