Cliven Bundy Arrested By FBI After Flying Into PDX Airport
PORTLAND, Ore. — Cliven Bundy, the father of Ammon Bundy, the arrested leader of the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, was booked in Multnomah County Jail Wednesday (February 10, 2016) night.
It was posted on the Bundy Ranch’s official Facebook page Wednesday night that Bundy would be heading to Burns.
The announcement was made amid news that the FBI had surrounded the four remaining armed occupiers at the refuge near Burns. The occupiers said that they would surrender Thursday morning.
Bundy flew into Portland International Airport Wednesday night, where he was detained by the FBI and booked into the jail at 10:54 p.m.
He was being held on a U.S. Marshal’s hold.
The Oregonian reports the arrest was made in connection with federal charges for a 2014 standoff in Nevada.
Further information on Bundy’s charges would be made announced Thursday morning, the FBI said.
Cliven’s arrest comes more than two weeks after Ammon was brought into custody.
