Cruz 18 was arrested by authorities in Palm Beach County after he was caught Saturday driving without a valid license and coming within a few feet of a school parking lot. He is seen above after his arrest in March

A Broward judge later placed him on a strict six-month probation that barred him from coming within a mile of the high school, or any school from which he was not enrolled.

David Scharf, executive director of community programs for the Broward County Sheriff's Office, witnessed Saturday's alleged violations, according to the warrant.

Zachary Cruz's latest arrest comes three weeks after his brother was formally arraigned on a 34-count indictment related to the February 14 school shooting, for which Nikolas Cruz faces the death penalty.

One day after he was arrested on a trespassing charge that violated his probation, the younger brother of Parkland mass shooter Nikolas Cruz announced Wednesday that he would be suing law enforcement over how his case was handled by authorities.

He was charged with trespassing, to which he later pleaded no contest.

Zachary Cruz has now been arrested for a probation violation, with affidavits attached to his arrest warrant from command staff in the Broward County Sheriff's Office.

"We adamantly deny these new allegations and look forward to defending our position in court", said Cruz's attorney, Mark S. Lowry, on Wednesday.

Zachary Cruz allegedly rode his skateboard through school grounds on March 19, later telling deputies he wanted to "reflect on the school shooting and soak it in", according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office. He was also caught driving without a valid license. "That just wasn't a condition we agreed to as part of his plea", Kimok said.

The brother of confessed Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz is back behind bars. They said they became concerned after learning Cruz mentioned his brother's notoriety and the pair discussed a "fan club" that could attract girls.

Civil rights firm Nexus Derechos Humanos made the announcement on the 18-year-old's behalf, claiming BSO violated Zachary's constitutional rights and "tortured" the teen in jail.
