Idaho State Police arrested a man this morning at the Idaho Statehouse after he refused to comply with a No Trespass Notice. 

   Arrested: Ammon Bundy, 44, Emmett, Idaho
   Charged: Trespassing (m), Resisting and Obstructing Officers (m)

   This morning was the second time in two days Bundy has been arrested by troopers on the above charges.
   The No Trespass Notice was personally served on Bundy by the Director of the Idaho Department of Administration and Idaho State Police Troopers after Bundy arrived in the gallery of the Idaho Senate this morning. Upon serving the notice, Bundy was respectfully and repeatedly told he needed to leave the State Capitol or face arrest. Bundy refused to leave. He was not cooperative when placed under arrest and troopers were forced to physically remove Bundy from the gallery, take him through a stairwell, place him in a wheelchair and then into a patrol vehicle. Bundy was booked into the Ada County Jail on the above charges. A copy of the No Trespass Order is attached to this release.
   A second man who was also arrested with Bundy for trespassing at the Statehouse yesterday was also served with a No Trespass Notice in the Senate Gallery this morning. He voluntarily left the property without incident.
   Idaho State Police will continue to work to balance people's right to participate in the legislative process while ensuring that the process remains peaceful.
