This isn’t Lance Bundy’s first brush with the law. In 2013, he was sentenced to 5 years of probation on felony weapon and burglary charges. In 2015, he was sentenced to prison after he missed court dates and failed to meet other conditions of his probation.

Police say he's facing a couple of charges including resisting police and violating a domestic violence protective order.
