Idaho school district bans anti-mask activist from property

The Caldwell School District in southwest Idaho has banned from its property or other school-sponsored events a right-wing political activist recently arrested for leading anti-mask protests.

Ammon Bundy was handed a no-trespassing order until the end of the 2020-21 school year after he went to a high school football game and refused to wear a mask or leave the property after he was asked to by school officials and law enforcement.

Bundy was at an Oct. 2nd football game to watch his sons play for Emmett High School in the matchup with Caldwell.

The Caldwell School School Board voted unanimously Tuesday to ban Bundy. The vote also allows district officials to ban anyone else that violates health and safety protocols.

In August, Idaho State Police gave Bundy a similar no-trespass order that banned him from the Idaho State Capitol. Bundy was arrested when he refused to leave the building after receiving the order. He pleaded not guilty to charges last week.

Bundy was also arrested in August after leading a large group of maskless protesters in a demonstration against regulations implemented to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. (AP)
