MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The gambler who hit it big on Tiger Woods' Masters victory has a lengthy criminal record in his home state of Wisconsin.

James Adducci was presented with a check for more than $1.2 million Monday at a Las Vegas sportsbook. Adducci cashed in on 14-1 odds that Woods would capture the tournament that ended Sunday in Augusta, Georgia. His win marks the largest golf payout ever for sportsbook operator William Hill US.

Online court records indicate the 39-year-old Adducci has had multiple run-ins with the law in Wisconsin dating to 2005. None of his offenses were felonies, but his record includes four disorderly conduct convictions with domestic abuse sentence modifiers in La Crosse County.

USA Today reports that in one of the cases the victim told police she was able to dive out of her car before Adducci struck her. The same woman told police in 2017 that Adducci shoved her.

His record also shows he was convicted in March 2015 of 2nd offense operating with a prohibited alcohol content. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and had his license revoked for 16 months.

Adducci told USA Today that his criminal record has nothing to do with winning the Woods bet. When the outlet told him his last arrest was in 2017, Adducci responded: ''And we are in 2019.''
