The Soboba Band of Luiseno Indians placed its chairman, Robert Salgado, on administrative leave Tuesday, one day after he pleaded not guilty to 36 counts of bribery.

The council also said he was not authorized to "conduct business or represent the Tribe in any capacity" although he is still chairman. Salgado, 67, was arrested by FBI agents last week on charges of accepting more than $250,000 in bribes from vendors doing business with the reservation near San Jacinto.

Robert Salgado, the long serving, colorful and often controversial leader of the Soboba Band of Luiseño Indians, was arrested by FBI agents today on charges that he accepted more than $250,000 in bribes from vendors and hid his income from the Internal Revenue Service.
