Casey Urlacher, the brother of Brian Urlacher, is facing criminal charges for illegal gambling, according to a publicly-made federal indictment:

Urlacher was one of 10 people facing charges for their involvement with the site unclemick.org. A man named Vincent Delgiudice – known as "uncle mick" – acted as the site's bookie, and a recent search of Delgiudice's home found "$1.06 million in cash; silver bars and jewelry valued at $347,895; and gold coins valued at $92,623."

In order to correspond with clients, Delguidice apparently "communicated with representatives of the sportsbook via an anonymous, end-to-end encrypted messaging application to ensure their communications remained secret, the indictment states." 

The Chicago Sun-Times reached out to him on Thursday, and Urlacher denied any knowledge of an investigation. 

Urlacher also currently serves as the mayor of Mettawa, Illinois.
