Twelve people were arrested Thursday in connection with an armed protest on the Bundy ranch in Nevada in 2014, NBC News reported.
The arrests include two more of Cliven Bundy’s sons — Melvin and David Bundy — and Gerald DeLemus, a New Hampshire man linked to Donald Trump’s campaign. Trump’s campaign did not respond to questions from NBC News about DeLemus’ arrest.
Federal agents who seized Bundy's cattle over unpaid grazing fees backed off after being confronted with armed protesters and snipers on Aug. 12, 2014.
