Fort Peck Tribal Chairman Floyd Azure was suspended Thursday by the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribal Executive Board, according to a press release from the board.

The Tribal Executive Board issued a statement of charges Thursday seeking his removal claiming that Azure "acted in a manner prejudicial to the Tribes."
