PORTLAND, Ore. (ABC4 Utah) Ammon Bundy and six others, were acquitted Thursday for their role in the 41-day long occupation of an Oregon wildlife refuge.
Bundy still faces federal charges in Nevada so they U.S. Marshal’s didn’t set him free.
Inside the courtroom after the jury decision, Bundy’s lawyer, Marcus Mumford, argued with them about that and ended up getting arrested himself.
“They put me on the ground, they tased me, and they put the cuffs on,” said Mumford.
This trial started back on September 7th and it was expected to last until Thanksgiving. Lawyers on both sides presented evidence faster than expected. This trial was the first of two in this case.
Seven other occupiers go to trial early next year.
