BUNKERVILLE, Nev. -- Tensions are rising in Bunkerville again over a report about the FBI is investigating Bundy supporters.

The FBI has launched a criminal investigation into supporters of rancher Cliven Bundy who may have assaulted and pointed their weapons toward officers.

Sheriff Doug Gillespie confirms FBI agents interviewed him about the tense confrontation with the Bureau of Land Management on April 12.

Cliven Bundy mentioned many times that he knows the FBI was there that day and they know what really happened.

Sheriff Gillespie says the FBI is looking at videos and pictures that show the confrontation between federal agents, Metro police officers, and Bundy supporters.

The FBi is investigating allegations that armed militia members assaulted and pointed their guns at officers.

Bundy says he's not worried about the federal investigation. He stresses his supporters were peaceful.

Sheriff Gillespie is quoted as saying someone will need to be held accountable for this. Bundy thinks otherwise.
