According to Patrick Orr, Ada County’s Sheriff’s spokesman, the Idaho Supreme Court has a mask mandate for anyone entering a courthouse. However, when Bundy showed up on Monday morning for the first day of his trial, he was not mandated and was denied entry.
Judge David Manweiler then issued a no-show arrest warrant, an offense.
Bundy was arrested and taken to Ada County Jail, where he is being held on a $ 10,000 bond, Orr said.
CNN asked Bundy for a comment but received no immediate response. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
Bundy faces charges of trespassing and resisting the arrest related to the August incident at the Idaho Statehouse. He was arrested for refusing to leave the Boise Capitol during a special session of the legislature.
“The soldiers were forced to physically remove Bundy from the Senate Gallery,” police said at the time.
Bundy and others were at the Capitol calling for an end to the state of emergency.
He and others were charged by a federal grand jury, but he was acquitted on firearms charges and conspiracy to interfere with federal employees.
