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.

    The Bundy Ranch must be the “No Go” zone Bobby Jindall was talking about.

  2. Unless they ordered butter chicken and samosas.

  3. he wasn’t shot for resisting arrest? I have been told repeatedly that you should just do whatever Mr. Copper says, and if you don’t then anything that happens to you thereafter is your fault.

    Oh, right. White guy. What was I thinking?

  4. Let freeDUMB reign.
