LAS VEGAS (AP) - Family members and supporters of a Nevada rancher who has been fighting the U.S. government over grazing rights have filed police reports in Las Vegas alleging crimes by federal agents.

The complaints filed Friday say the offenses occurred during a cattle roundup that ended with an armed standoff almost three weeks ago.

Cliven Bundy wasn't at the sheriff's office when the complaints were filed. But three of his sons, two sisters and perhaps 15 others filed reports against Bureau of Land Management agents.

Bundy son Ammon Bundy says his father filed a report earlier.

Cliven Bundy alleges that armed agents illegally blocked roads, harassed photographers, used attack dogs, pointed weapons and threatened people protesting a roundup of his cattle from public land.

The BLM abandoned the roundup April 12 after facing armed militia members near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
