COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A man who was robbed of more than $35,000 in gambling winnings is suing the Columbus casino where he won the money, arguing a cashier should have issued him a check instead of cash.

Police say 29-year-old David Hayes was robbed at gunpoint of the 358 $100 bills when two men woke him at home hours after he left the Hollywood Casino Columbus with his winnings.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/12lzjtM ) reports that Hayes filed a lawsuit against the casino's operator. He contends he asked for a check when he cashed out on Oct. 21 but was given cash instead.

The lawsuit also claims the casino "breached its duty to maintain the confidentiality of customer financial transactions."

The casino says Hayes lost the money because of his own negligence.
