Activist Ammon Bundy was arrested Friday night while attending a football fundraiser in Emmett.

Mr. Bundy's arrested was documented on social media.
Mr. Bundy's arrest led several folks to protest outside the Gem County Jail demanding his release. He had taken to social media to inform the public that he was not limited to his home in Emmett, but was traveling across the state and did leave the country.
The People's Rights group has been supporting Mr. Bundy during his multiple legal engagements with the law which began during the pandemic. He has been arrested several times including at the Statehouse.
The lawsuit involves the statements and protests involving Saint Lukes, Meridian Police, and other law enforcement concerning Baby Cirus. The authorities took the baby saying that he needed proper medical care. Mr. Bundy and Mr. Roderiguez allege that the state had no right to do that action and the baby was healthy.
