LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities say the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has been arrested on federal land on parole violations and a drug court arrest warrant.

Records showed 35-year-old Cliven Lance Bundy was held Wednesday at the Clark County jail pending a court appearance.

The federal Bureau of Land Management released a statement saying a ranger checking off-road vehicles for permits at Jean Dry Lake arrested Bundy on Sunday driving a commercial tour group vehicle.

A public defender who previously represented Bundy didn't immediately respond to messages.

The elder Bundy became a symbol for resisting authority after armed supporters faced off with federal agents in April to end a BLM roundup of his cattle.

He said Wednesday he's been trying to help his son but hasn't heard from him since the holidays.
