Ted Arneault, former CEO of MTR Gaming Group of West Virginia and the man responsible for the purchase and subsequent sale of Binion’s Gaming Hall in downtown Las Vegas, is fighting to keep his gaming license in Pennsylvania.

It was while Arneault was head of MTR Gaming that the company built Presque Isle Downs & Casino near Erie, Pennsylvania. He later left the company.

Reportedly, Pennsylvania gaming board investigators are opposing Arneault’s application to renew his license based on "inaccuracies or inconsistencies" in statements he made during his interrogation.
