Cliven Bundy, the father of Ammon Bundy, was accused by the federal government Thursday of six crimes related to a 2014 protest at his Nevada ranch.

Cliven Bundy appeared in court Thursday afternoon. He will stay in jail until his next court hearing on Feb. 17.

Bundy will be behind bars in the same jail housing his sons, the leaders of an armed group that occupied an Oregon wildlife refuge. The elder Bundy was arrested Wednesday night when he arrived in Portland from Las Vegas to visit sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy.

Cliven Bundy was charged with leading a tense 2014 armed standoff with federal officials near his ranch in Nevada.
