On March 29, Las Vegas police notified a district judge that Nichols had cut off his bracelet and fled. The device was found on a Henderson street corner.

Nichols’ father helped Timothy McVeigh build the bomb that killed 168 people inside a federal building in Oklahoma City in April 1995.

His father is serving a life sentence for his role in the Oklahoma City bombing. McVeigh was executed in 2001. Josh Nichols was 12 at the time of the bombing.

Nichols is scheduled to appear in court on April 21.
