Blackjack dealer Brenda Stokes, 50, arrested after she stabbed female croupier in the FACE at Las Vegas' luxurious Bellagio hotel
A female croupier was stabbed in the face at the world famous Bellagio hotel on the Las Vegas strip as tourists looked on.
According to local reports a fight broke out between two female blackjack dealers at the luxury hotel famed for its elaborate fountain displays.
50-year-old Brenda Stokes was accused at stabbing the other dealer in the Blackjack pit, according to KSNV-TV.

The other woman, who hasn't been named, was taken to the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with deep facial cuts.
It is unknown how many of the Bellagio's 4,000 guests saw the fight, which occurred in the crowded casino at around 9.45pm, but it comes just a week after many witnessed a murder-suicide in a busy hotel lobby on the famous strip.
An Illinois man shot dead his ex-girlfriend in the entrance-way of the Excalibur hotel around 8.30pm on Friday, December 14.
Jessica Kenny, 30, who worked as a concierge at the hotel, was shot on a crowded Friday night as panicked tourists ran for cover following the sound of gunshots.
Her ex-boyfriend Edward Brandt then turned the gun on himself.
According to AbcNews Brandt, who had dated Kenny for less than six months checked into the hotel two days before and waited for her to come into work.
It is not known if the two card-dealers involved in the Bellagio incident were working when the fight erupted or what caused them to come to blows.
Wilson faces charges of battery with a deadly weapon and mayhem with substantial bodily harm.
The Bellagio is one of Las Vegas' best-known hotels.
A double room at the resort costs around $180 per night at this time of year.
The blackjack pit, where a minimum bet is $100 and the maximum $1000, was back up and running after the crime scene was "secured and restored," Yvette Monet, a spokeswoman for MGM Resorts International, the owner of the Bellagio told the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Officer Marcus Martin, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Department, said of the two incidents: "I gotta say, if you look at the people we serve, the tourists and the locals, events like these do happen on the streets in Las Vegas. But this latest sort of stuff? Inside casinos? Just off the Strip? This is rare."
