(CNN)Ammon Bundy, who was to go on trial after being charged with trespassing in the Idaho Statehouse last year, was arrested Monday after he refused to wear a mask in court.
According to Ada County Sheriff spokesperson Patrick Orr, the Idaho Supreme Court has a mask mandate for anyone entering a courthouse, but when Bundy showed up Monday morning for the first day of his jury trial he wouldn’t wear one and was denied entry.
Magistrate Judge David Manweiler then issued a warrant for failure to appear, a misdemeanor.
Bundy was arrested and taken to the Ada County Jail where he is being held on $10,000 bond, Orr said.
CNN reached out to Bundy for comment but didn’t get an immediate reply. It is unclear whether he has an attorney.
