Like so many Las Vegans since it was announced the NFL’s Raiders would be moving there in 2020, a fellow named Dan Holmgren recently had a chance meeting with Mark Davis, the team’s accessible and amiable owner.

It was a major thrill for the limousine chauffeur who grew up in the Bay Area.

The brief conversation would cost Holmgren, 53, his job.

    Here is the problem, Las Vegas has strict rules of what driver can and can not do. He was in line to get a ride from the starter at Caesars Palace. There is a statue NRS 706.228 that prevents Limousine drivers to be at least 50 feet away from any cab line as drivers try to socialite. He was close to the cab line. Although this driver was not doing that, and he should have stayed in his vehicle as he was in line for a "Kelly" ride, Vegas term, this is the issue. Was he star struct? Looks like it.
