Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy was arrested early Thursday morning in Oregon.
Bundy was on his way to Burns, Oregon to take part in the occupation of a federal wildlife refuge.
According to The Hill:
“Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy was arrested late Wednesday in Portland, Ore., on his way to the wildlife refuge occupation he supported.
Local law officials booked Bundy, 74, at Portland International Airport on federal charges stemming from the 2014 armed standoff at his Nevada ranch, The Oregonian reports.
His arrest is part of escalated efforts by the FBI to end the 41-day occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in rural Burns, Ore., about a six-hour drive from Portland in the eastern part of the state.
Federal authorities surrounded the four remaining armed occupiers, spurring the self-styled militia members to agree to surrender Thursday morning.”
