Cliven Bundy’s Son Arrested on Contempt Warrant

The 34-year-old son of a Nevada rancher who hosted armed protesters against federal agents in a cattle-roundup dispute in April has been arrested in a separate case.

Las Vegas police told NBC News that it was not actively searching for Cliven Lance Bundy, who was wanted on a warrant for criminal contempt of court after he failed to make a court appearance in Las Vegas in July, but arrested him “without incident” at 5:40 p.m. Sunday after responding to a call at a residence in Las Vegas Valley. A police spokesman would not say why officers were called to the home.

He had been named in a contempt-of-court warrant issued July 8 for failing to appear before a Clark County District Court judge overseeing a drug-diversion program in Las Vegas. He has a felony conviction on 2012 burglary and weapon charges. Cliven Lance Bundy told The Associated Press last month that he underwent surgery that same day in Henderson for a nerve pain condition. He said he was trying to get his program counselor to help him respond to the warrant.

Bundy was being held at Clark County Detention Center Tuesday.
