The head of the Veterans for Trump in New Hampshire was arrested Thursday morning in connection with the 2014 standoff at the Bundy Ranch.

The FBI took Jerry DeLemus into custody as a new indictment was unsealed.

Jerry DeLemus is a guy from New Hampshire who is known for a few different things. He called for a “Draw Mohammad” contest in the state following the Charlie Hebdo shootings. He stood with the outspoken Cliven Bundy when he had an armed “resistance” at his ranch in 2014.

“This investigation began the day after the assault against federal law enforcement officers and continues to this day,” U.S. Attorney for the District of Nevada Daniel Bogden said in a statement. “We will continue to work to identify the assaulters and their role in the assault and the aftermath, in order to ensure that justice is served.”

Federal authorities rounded up 12 people in five states on Thursday, March 3, 2016, bringing to 19 the number of defendants facing conspiracy, assault and threats charges in a 2014 armed standoff over grazing cattle on U.S. land near renegade cattleman Cliven Bundy’s ranch in southern Nevada.

Cliven Bundy is accused of unlawfully directing more than 200 followers to stop federal agents and contract cowboys who were trying to enforce a court order to round up about 400 of his cattle two years ago. Bundy lost the case. The wheels of justice turn slowly but they finally caught up with Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy Wednesday, Feb. 10, when he was arrested by federal officials in Portland, Oregon. The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Bundys’ argument before they even brought it up. Federal authorities eventually backed down.
