Coarsegold's Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino closed on Friday after an argument between two parties of the owning Native American tribe escalated.
Power was cut at the casino by someone the night before. Guests were evacuated. Workers were sent home.
The Picayune Rancheria of Chukchansi Indians owns the casino. Members of the tribe entered the casino in order to locate financial statements and audits that have been missing for since 2012.
If the audits can not be located, the casino will be shut down on October 27 by the National Indian Gaming Commission.
In addition, the tribe will be ordered to pay fines of up to $100,000 a day. The fines will back date to April 30.
