Las Vegas • The son of a rural Nevada cattle rancher has been freed from federal custody, a day after his arrest by agents working to remove cattle from disputed grazing areas northeast of Las Vegas.

A U.S. attorney’s office spokeswoman in Las Vegas said Monday that 37-year-old Dave Bundy is accused of refusing to disperse and resisting officers.

Bundy’s mother, Carol Bundy, says U.S. Bureau of Land Management agents arrested her son Sunday in a parked car on State Route 170 near Bunkerville.

Bundy’s father, Cliven Bundy, says his cattle are entitled to graze in the Gold Butte area.

The bureau says agents have rounded up 134 cows that have been trespassing on a vast 1,200 square miles of arid rangeland northeast of Las Vegas and the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
