In 2009, both men were sued by the government over “discharging “pollutants” into “waters of the United States:”

After eight years of failed negotiations and ignored orders, the United States sued George Rudy Cundiff (who goes by Rudy) and his son, Christopher Seth Cundiff (who goes by Seth), seeking injunctive relief and civil penalties against them for discharging “pollutants” into “waters of the United States” without a permit in violation of the Clean Water Act. 33 U.S.C. § 1362.   The district court granted summary judgment for the government, imposed injunctive relief in the form of a restoration plan for the Cundiffs’ wetlands, and imposed a civil penalty of $225,000.   All but $25,000 of that penalty was suspended, however, provided that the Cundiffs implemented the restoration plan.   The district court also dismissed the Cundiffs’ array of statutory, common law, and constitutional counterclaims.   While the original appeal in this case was pending, the Supreme Court issued its splintered ruling in Rapanos v. United States, 547 U.S. 715, 126 S.Ct. 2208, 165 L.Ed.2d 159 (2006), which defined the Act’s jurisdiction over “waters of the United States.”   In light of Rapanos, we returned the case to the district court to reconsider whether jurisdiction was proper over the Cundiffs’ wetlands.   The district court determined that it was because the Cundiffs’ wetlands were in fact waters of the United States, and the Cundiffs appealed, source.

The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
