CLEVELAND, Ohio — A man accused of using a racial slur toward an employee at the Horseshoe Casino in February was placed on probation after writing a two-page letter of apology to the worker.
Mohammad Mustafa, 35, of North Olmsted, was also ordered to attend anger management.
Judge Pinkey Carr said she was going to bring the letter Mustafa wrote to the worker.
The judge found Mustafa guilty of a minor misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, according to court records.
Mustafa said in his letter that he is deeply sorry for what happened.
“The exchange of words at the casino could have led to something much larger, like a fist fight perhaps, which would have put me in a lot of trouble, because of my inability to control myself that day,” Mustafa wrote. “It was wrong of me to let my temper get the best of me that day, and to use any racial slur ever is unacceptable, and I am very embarrassed that I allowed myself to have such a lack of control over my words.”
