LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Cliven Lance Bundy, son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, was arrested by Henderson Police on Jan. 5.

According to police, the younger Bundy was booked into the Henderson Detention Center for charges of resisting a public officer and violating a domestic violence TPO. 

Henderson police released Bundy's declaration of arrest on Wednesday. The report lists his initial date of arrest as Oct. 1.

The report from that date said a woman contacted police, stating her daughter had a no-contact order against her son-in-law, Bundy, and that she saw him walking toward their home. 

Police stopped Bundy and observed what they believed to be a weapon. Bundy told police the item was a Leatherman multi-tool, however the officer wrote in the report he believed it could be a small, concealed firearm. They asked Bundy if they could remove the item, which prompted Bundy to place his hand on the case and become "uncooperative."

Police said "with little warning," Bundy ran away from the officers. They chased him and when they caught up, they said Bundy turned and charged them. The officer said they tried to tackle then taser Bundy, both attempts unsuccessful.

The officer deployed his Taser again, hitting Bundy and causing him to fall to the ground. Bundy "did not complain of any injuries," and was cleared by Henderson Fire Department officials. 

Police said Bundy had two active warrants in Henderson, one for failing to appear on a domestic battery charge and one for failing to appear on a possession of drugs charge. 

Police also noted a record checked showed an active protection order out of Erie County in New York. 

In custody, Bundy told police he was in town after living in New York for a year. He said he was staying at Boulder Station and was in contact with his child's grandmother to see his son. He told police he was aware of the protection order, but said "it was granted unlawfully."

Bundy, 41, is one of Cliven Bundy's 14 children.

In 2015, Bundy, who goes by his middle name, was sentenced to prison for 2013 felony convictions. At the time, he apologized for missing court dates, failing to keep in contact with probation officers and failing since February 2013 to complete a one-year court-run drug diversion program.

Bundy’s father gained national attention over a 2014 armed standoff with federal agents near the family ranch in Nevada. Two years later, Bundy’s brothers led a 41-day anti-government protest occupation at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon.
