BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A circus promoter has been banned for doing business in North Dakota.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem issued a cease-and-desist order against American United Entertainment LLC, also known as Great American Circus of the Stars of Gainesville, Texas.

A new release from Stenehjem's office says the promoter failed to share a percentage of ticket sales with the cities of Park River and Grafton from last summer's show.

The release says in one instance, the circus left town in the middle of night without paying.

A phone listing could not be found for American United Entertainment LLC, which is not related to California-based American United Entertainment.
