Anti-Government Activist Arrested Second Time at Idaho Statehouse


For the second time in the past two days an anti-government activist is being arrested at the Idaho Statehouse.

Idaho State Police put Ammon Bundy in a wheelchair and removed him from the Senate gallery on Wednesday. Bundy was also arrested Tuesday in a committee room and charged with trespassing and resisting and obstructing officers.

Bundy refused to stand and was wheeled out in an office chair. Idaho State Police say that he’s prohibited from coming to the Statehouse for one year following the Tuesday arrest.

Lawmakers had to abandon a committee room on Tuesday when a crowd shouted down lawmakers and forced them out. It was a special session called by Republican Gov. Brad little because of the coronavirus.
