Madera County Sheriff Completes FELONY Complaints on 11 people in Chukchansi Closures
Criminal complaints have been completed by the Madera County Sheriff’s Office regarding the Oct. 9 armed infiltration of Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino, which prompted the facility’s closure the following day.
The criminal complaints were completed Monday after many interviews and a review of casino surveillance footage, said Sheriff John Anderson. On Tuesday morning, District Attorney Michael Keitz said he was told the reports would be delivered to his office before the end of the day.
Anderson said the complaints are against 11 people, and he recommends six or seven felony charges each. Anderson declined to share more information, stating the complaints are being reviewed by the district attorney.
On Oct. 9, security forces from two feuding tribal factions squared off after a faction led by Tex McDonald entered the casino in search of documents to complete late audits.
The next day, public safety concerns prompted the closure of the 1,800-slot, 40-table casino and hotel under a mandate from the National Indian Gaming Commission, the state attorney general and a federal judge. The next hearing about the closure will be held in federal court on Wednesday in Fresno.
