Cliven Bundy Now Occupying a Jail Cell After FBI Agents Arrested Him Last Night in Oregon
February 11, 2016News & Politics
Last night, the FBI rounded up the head of the Bundy family as he arrived at the Portland airport.
More from The Oregonian:
Bundy, 74, was booked into the downtown Multnomah County jail at 10:54 p.m.
He faces a conspiracy charge to interfere with a federal officer -- the same charge lodged against two of his sons, Ammon and Ryan, for their role in the Jan. 2 takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Burns. He also faces weapons charges.
The four remaining occupiers were surrounded by the FBI last night as agents moved in closer. After a drama-filled multi-hour call with Michael Arnold, Ammon Bundy’s attorney, and Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, they agreed to turn themselves in to the FBI this morning at 8:00 am PT.
