The site of the proposed Red Clay Casino in Broken Arrow is now the home of a seasonal fireworks stand. "Crazy Debbie's Fireworks' is operated by the owner of 'Great Scott Fireworks', Randy Scott.

"We are right here on the edge, so you sell here and its a great location for fireworks," said Scott.

A prime spot for fireworks, is also right in the middle of the Red Clay Casino controversy. Federal Judge, Greg Frizzell, granted an injunction stop construction on the Red Clay Casino in Broken Arrow. The National Indian Gaming Commission also determined that the Kialegee Tribal Town, lacked the jurisdiction over the land.

Randy Scott said he wants nothing to do with the political fireworks. "I know nothing about that, all I know is I'm going to sell fireworks."

A lawyer for the landowner confirmed with FOX23, just as in years past, that a third party would run a fireworks stand on the site location. Randy said when he realized the space was available he contacted the Kialagee Tribal Town and signed a lease.

Some are fired up about the fireworks stand and call the move a violation of the injunction. Randy owns another fireworks stand in Coweta. He said his focus for the summer is to sell sparklers and artillery shells and not get involved in the politics.

"I'm a fireworks man," Randy said. "To me it's not about the casino, its not about the Kialagee, its not anything. Its business."

The Attorney General's office has filed for 'contempt of court'. Stating, "The stand goes against a construction injunction at the site."

Randy said there isn't anything politically motivated in his stand. He said he just wants to put on smiles on peoples face but he can't control what others do around him.

"If they need to protest, go ahead and protest," said Randy. "I'm just still all about the fireworks."

Randy said the fireworks stand is only seasonal. "When its done, we clean up, sweep up and disappear in a day."

The lawyer for the landowner told FOX23 on Thursday the court order does not deny them "Economic or beneficial use of their property," nor does it stop physical occupation.

Randy Scott must not be paying attention. He signed a lease with the Kialegee Tribal Town to sell fireworks on the land that the court and the National Indian Gaming Commission have ruled is not under their jurisdiction. Whether or not, he likes it, he is part of violating the court injunction, and it should be his concern.
