Bundy was at the Iron County Justice Court on a separate case when deputies approached him to serve the warrant, according to a press release from the Iron County Sheriff’s Office.

“When told about the warrant Mr. Bundy both verbally and physically resisted the deputies’ attempts to take him into custody,” the press release said. “Deputies were able to overcome his resistance and arrested Mr. Bundy.”

Bundy was booked into the Iron County Jail on the class B misdemeanor warrant as well as one class B misdemeanor charge for interfering with an officer and one class B misdemeanor charge for resisting arrest, according to current bookings information.

No additional information about the incident was available from the Iron County Sheriff’s Department at the time of this publication.

    Guess he’s not so tough without his militia.

  • Harvey January 28, 2015 at 8:35 pm

    Surprising, I figured he would be a major hero in Cedar City.

  • smm January 28, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    The man speaking in the picture with Cliven is Ammon Bundy, not Ryan.

    • Cami Cox Jim January 28, 2015 at 10:17 pm

      Hi there. The reporter who took this photo has a picture of Ammon from that same rally, and he’s wearing a different hat and shirt than the man in this photo. Our reporter said he is confident Ryan is the one pictured here.

    I hate to pick on somebody for looks but is it possible there was some inbreeding when this guy was brought into the world? Those crazy Bundy’s.

    • prryjs January 28, 2015 at 10:55 pm

      Obviously you don’t hate to pick on him. Says more about how ugly of a person you are.

      • One for the road January 29, 2015 at 1:55 am

        Your uglier. HA HA

  • Notforfree January 28, 2015 at 10:17 pm

    Ha Ha Bundy in jail Ha Ha Bundy in jail. Well Darn they got my brother in jail lets saddle up the horses ride into town shoot up the place get a bottle at the Saloon and break little cliven out of jail and ride out. to the hideout. LOL.!

  • prryjs January 28, 2015 at 11:00 pm

    Nothing more than him being harassed for standing up against the feds just like the rest of his family. Whether you think they are right or wrong, the same thing would happen to you if you decided to stand up to our corrupt government, which is why most don’t. The family pays more taxes than most of you dead beats. He doesn’t agree with a fee, that doesn’t make him a dead beat. The dead beats are probably the majority of the readers commenting on this site sitting home on social security because they are “disabled”. St. George news has more disrespectful comments than any other paper I have read. It is obvious that a few in this town need to get a life of their own. I’m sure if we knew who you all were we could make a few jokes ourselves.

    • One for the road January 29, 2015 at 1:41 am

      Hey ya dead beat did you hear that little cliven is in jail.? Ha ha ha… maybe you should concentrate on getting a life you sound like dead beat whiner to me. now go pay your taxes dead beat because the rest of us don’t have to.. Ha ha ha. LOL…

        Did you hear BUNDY GOT ARRESTED na na na na na. LOL

    • tcrider January 29, 2015 at 3:33 pm

      this is not about anybody being harassed, this is about breaking the law. The nuts don’t fall too far from the tree and this story makes it obvious. You and a few nut jobs from bundies ranch would give southern Utah a bad name if you could only control the media and the free speech that goes on. The only thing that is disrespectful around here, is you and your nut job cronies that think your views are superior to other peoples. If you want to see a real hypocrit, go look in a mirror. People like you need to be locked up on a island. You sound like you have some real self pity issues. get over it and start reading some other books besides the real old ones. The government is not evil, you and bundies ranch is questionable.

    • Chris January 29, 2015 at 5:34 pm

      If you took the effort to look into charges against Ryan Bundy, you would know that they have nothing to do with his stance against the “feds.” The Bundy family is just a bunch of scofflaws and dead beats. Not paying a legal fee mandated by a valid law most certainly does make you a dead beat. Cliven Bundy takes the federal handouts in the form of grazing privileges, but refuses to pay his fair share. He is a disgrace to ethical cattlemen everywhere.

      • Missy January 30, 2015 at 9:03 am

        Agreed. I am all for Civil Disobedience, if it’s for the right reasons, such as, shutting down the National Parks. This Bundy thing was/is all about a fire hydrant contest. Not worth it. There are many laws and organizations, I disagree with, but, this “fight” is not one of them.

  • tells it like it is January 28, 2015 at 11:18 pm

    Seems to me that he and his younger brother respect the law just like their daddy does. Cliven, you’ve proven to be quite the teacher!

  • sagemoon January 29, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Ha, ha, love the booking photo.

    Distorted facial features likely due to Bell’s Palsy

    • sagemoon January 29, 2015 at 1:35 pm

      Oh, geez, now I feel bad. I don’t want to make fun of someone with a handicap but I love making fun of people making foolish faces for the jail camera.

      • Bender January 29, 2015 at 4:45 pm

        Well SAGEMOON, if it is Bell’s Palsy, it’s likely temporary and he will soon revert to being a symmetric-faced idiot.

  • prryjs January 29, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    What they don’t report is that he was released today from jail after seeing the judge. No one appears to know why he was arrested and the judge said sorry and let him go. All of you who think this is funny just wait until your rights are violated someday in the near future when we no longer have any.

    • Cami Cox Jim January 29, 2015 at 7:36 pm

      Watch for our forthcoming follow-up story.

    • Chris January 29, 2015 at 7:56 pm

      Wrong. He was charged with three class B misdemeanors ( failure to appear on a previous charge, resisting arrest and interfering with an officer of the law) and released on bail. No one, especially the judge, said “sorry.” The charges are still in effect, and he will have to appear at a future date to answer to them. He posted $1440 for bail. There is absolutely no indication that any rights were violated, except in your demented mind.

    • tcrider January 29, 2015 at 9:09 pm

      PRRYJS : What you don’t see, is that we don’t want the bundies in southern utah, why don’t you go live on bundies ranch and leave the good people of utah alone.

    War is coming. Organize as Militia for mutual defense. Set up a 5/10 program in your AO. Logistics. More is better. Vote with your wallet and buy more ammo. The idiots that cheer on a bigger and bigger Police State are typically shills that are working for and are IN the Police State. Useful idiots as their Communist fellow travelers in the Fed say.

      Also, don’t neglect extra tinfoil hats. They wear out quickly and HUSSEIN OBAMA will soon outlaw them and take them away. Maximus stupidus fratres.

    • Chris January 29, 2015 at 5:36 pm

      Big talk there buddy. What war were you ever involved in?

  • voice of reason January 29, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    I was told (on good authority) that his facial problems stem from being kicked by a horse. Of course, one wonders what Mr. Bundy was doing behind the horse. . . .

    • Free Parkimg January 29, 2015 at 10:40 pm

      Well unfortunately we can’t answer that question because its would violate the terms of use agreement.. HA HA HA HA LOL.!
