Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A shock for people trying to go to the Fargo Teamsters Club today. The doors were locked. And they may never re-open for the bar.

The group's national president shut Teamsters Local 120 down today, accusing people who run the club of mishandling money.

Are those accusations directed toward the people who work at the Teamsters Local 120 post out of Blaine? But this affects Fargo?

The accusations are just related to the board of directors that runs the Teamsters bar. Those people are from Blaine, Minnesota.

Here are those accusations. A letter posted on the door of Teamsters accuses the Local 120 of malpractice in many areas, notably the purchase of real estate, and the paying off of vendors.

Those accusations are directed toward people who run the post in Blaine.

Here's how Fargo got involved in all this: Those same people, accused of malpractice, are on the board of directors for the Teamsters Club here.

They're the ones accused of mishandling the club's money.

National Teamsters Reps say accusations are not pointed at those working at the bar, or those in the Local 120 office.
