Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy's Son Arrested By Feds

By    |   Wednesday, 14 Jan 2015 10:33 PM

A son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy – whose states-rights battle with the government to graze his cattle on public lands put him in the national spotlight – was arrested on federal land for suspected parole violations and a drug court arrest warrant.

Cliven Lance Bundy, 35, was being held Wednesday at the Clark County jail pending a court appearance.

"I knew he had a warrant and when I saw him at Christmastime I asked him if he was taking care of it and he told me he had a lawyer," the elder Bundy told the Los Angeles Times Wednesday.

The younger Bundy, the sixth of 14 children born to the rancher, hasn't been in regular touch with his family recently, the newspaper reports.

He wasn't involved in an armed standoff between Bundy supporters and the Bureau of Land Management during a roundup of the rancher's cattle north of Las Vegas last April.

"He’s sort of my long-lost brother," Bailey Logue, one of Cliven Bundy's daughters, told The Los Angeles Times.

In a statement, the BLM said a ranger checking vehicles for permits at Jean Dry Lake arrested Bundy on Sunday while he was driving a commercial tour group vehicle.

Bundy said his son was working with a company selling four-wheel-drive vehicles and often took customers into the desert – and said he believed his son was targeted.

"This is aimed at all the Bundys," he told the L.A. Times. "Anything that goes on with my family goes out on headlines as a bad mark on our family name. The feds see to that."

The elder Bundy said his son has seen his share of family and legal troubles.

He said Lance Bundy lives in Los Vegas and has endured recent family and legal troubles.

"He is my son and I care and worry about him" Bundy told the newspaper. "We have tried to help him. I want to see him get his life in order and get back to being a family man."
