Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy’s Son Jailed After Allegedly Resisting Arrest

Ryan Bundy, son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, was jailed after resisting arrest on another outstanding warrant.

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s son Ryan was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly resisted arrest when officers approached him about an outstanding warrant.

Salt Lake City TV station KSTU reported that Ryan Bundy, 42, was in Iron County court Tuesday for a separate case when police approached him about the warrant, which was for interfering with an animal control officer.

“When told about the warrant Mr. Bundy both verbally and physically resisted the deputies’ attempts to take him into custody,” Iron County Sheriff’s office officials told the news station. “Deputies were able to overcome his resistance and arrested Mr. Bundy.”

Bundy participated in an all-terrain vehicle rally after the standoff with Bureau of Land Management agents last spring at his father’s ranch. Protesters rode ATVs to protest the BLM’s closure of Recapture Canyon.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
