LAKEWOOD, Colo. Two Lakewood men have been arrested on suspicion of trying to use rattlesnakes as hit men to collect on a gambling debt.
The men were allegedly trying to kill Matthew Sowash, owner of Amateur Poker Tour in Wheat Ridge because he owed them $60,000, the Rocky Mountain News reported. Arrest affidavits say Sowash's company stages Texas Hold'em-style poker games in Denver area bars.
