According to a spokesperson for Ada County Sheriff Patrick Orr, the Idaho Supreme Court has a mask mandate for anyone entering the courtroom, but when Bundy appeared Monday morning on the first day of his jury trial, he was not wearing one and was denied entry.
Then Magistrate Judge David Manweiler issued an arrest warrant for non-attendance, which is a misdemeanor.
Ur said that Bundy was arrested and taken to Ada County Jail where he was held on $ 10,000 bail.
CNN contacted Bundy for comment but did not get an immediate response. It is not clear if he has a lawyer.
Bondi faces misdemeanor trespassing charges and resisting arrest related to the August accident at his Idaho state home. He was arrested for refusing to leave the Boise Capitol building during a special session of the legislature.
Police said at the time: “Soldiers were forced to physically remove Bundy from the Senate Gallery.”
Bondi and others were on the Capitol building demanding an end to the state of emergency.
He and others were indicted by a federal grand jury, but he was acquitted of charges of firearms and conspiracy to obstruct federal workers.
