Patrons of Chukchansi Casino USHERED OUT IN MID GAME.

FRESNO BEE REPORTS: Patrons of Chukchansi Gold Resort and Casino in Coarsegold were abruptly ushered out of the casino in mid-game Thursday night and the casino and hotel were apparently closed, according to patrons.
Madera County sheriff’s spokewoman Erica Stuart said tribal factions were feuding again and someone pulled a fire alarm to evacuate the building. She said it is not known who pulled the alarm. The Sheriff’s Office is investigating, she said.
Stuart said she was advised that only people who have rented rooms at the hotel will be allowed back in Thursday night.
Donn Hanfler of Merced said he was playing Spanish 21 at a table about 7:45 p.m. when a security guard ordered the game shut down and the players to leave. Players were not allowed to cash in their chips or tickets, and even cashiers were locked out, he said.
“They threw us all out,” he said. “I ended up getting screwed out of my money.”
he National Indian Gaming Commission says the casino could close Oct. 27 if the missing audits are not submitted. The tribe also faces fines of up to $100,000 per day dating back to April 30. If fully assessed, those fines would equal $16 million.
In a five-page letter dated Tuesday, the NIGC's acting chairman, Jonodev Chaudhuri, said that casino officials have not filed financial statements and audits dating back to 2012 and 2013, the earliest of which was due on April 30, 2013.
Audits are required so that the government officials are assured that tribal gaming meets certain federal guidelines.
