Two protesters arrested, charged

10 Apr, 2014

Two brothers who came to the Bundy ranch to show support for the rancher in his dispute with the BLM are arrested after fighting with federal rangers. ¬†They are arrested after they illegally entered a federal holding pen near the Overton Marina near Bunkerville, where the BLM is holding some of Bundy’s confiscated cattle. Both brothers deny doing anything illegal or violent; they accuse the rangers of threatening them with tasers. Spencer Shillig claims¬†to have not shown “any signs of aggression” towards the rangers and says he was thrown to the ground. His brother was arrested when he came to assist.
