A staffer for John McCain's 2016 U.S. Senate campaign who was arrested for ripping a sign off Bucky's Casino in Prescott Feb. 23 had his charges dropped this morning.
Blaze Baggs is expected to pay $275 in settlement costs and $38 in restitution to the Yavapai Gaming Agency. Bucky's Casino is run by the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe.
According to Yavapai Prescott Tribal Police officer J. Meza, Baggs tore down a "Casino Shuttle" sign before keeping it in his possession while waiting for a friend. After showing his friend the sign, Baggs tosses it into the air and enters the casino.
As part of the settlement, Baggs has to stay out of trouble for six months or the federal government could re-file charges. He is still banned from Bucky's and all other Yavapai casinos.
