Chukchansi Gold Casino Closed After Tribal Power Struggle

The Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino in Coarsegold, California remains closed following an armed standoff and may have violated its compact with all the state.

The Chukchansi Gold Casino in Coarsegold, California, simply 40 miles north of Fresno, has been closed by order of a federal judge following a strange management power struggle that culminated in an armed invasion of the building.

A tribal faction that claims rightful ownership regarding the Indian casino had apparently been ousted to a local business park in August adhering to a disputed election, but returned on Thursday, with guns drawn.

About 20 armed males entered the casino at around 6:30 pm, sending customers running for cover, and ordered security guards at gunpoint into a protected area of the building. Guards were reportedly assaulted and handcuffed, but no casino clients were hurt.

The target, it seems, were casino papers and accounts being overdue for submission to the National Indian Gaming Commission. The Commission had threatened to close the casino down and issue it a $16 million fine if the necessary audits and reports, some that are eighteen months late, were not submitted. It would seem, then, that the ousted faction violently stormed the casino so that you can do its accounts.
