🎥 Ammon Bundy Arrested For Refusing to Wear a Mask In Court & Not Being Allowed Into His Own Trial

March 16, 2021

Ammon Bundy was arrested on Monday after refusing to wear a mask into an Idaho courthouse and thus being denied entry into his own trial.

Bundy is perhaps most infamous for the 2014 armed confrontation between supporters of his father, cattle rancher Cliven Bundy, and law enforcement over a land dispute. He also made headlines in 2016 for the standoff at an Oregon wildlife refuge.

Bundy was due in court over misdemeanor trespassing and resisting arrest charges stemming from an August protest at the Idaho Statehouse.

“In August, Bundy and two others refused to leave the statehouse after a hearing was switched to another part of the building. When Bundy refused to get up from his swivel chair, state police rolled him out,” according to a report from NBC News.

“Mr. Bundy today refused to wear a mask to come into the courthouse and thus was not granted admission,” Steven Hippler, administrative judge for the Fourth Judicial District, told NBC News.

When Bundy failed to enter the Ada County Courthouse, Magistrate Judge David Manweile issued a warrant for his arrest.
