Zachary Cruz, the brother of confessed Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz, was arrested again Tuesday evening.

As RedState reported in March, Cruz was originally arrested back in March for trespassing at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the campus where his brother killed 17 students and teachers and wounded 17 more. He had been repeatedly warned by police to stay away from the school but had ignored those instructions.


Cruz pled no contest to the trespassing charge, and the terms of his six-month probation included requiring him to stay away from Stoneman Douglas as well as any other schools unless he was enrolled there.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Cruz was accused of violating his probation for driving on April 28 without a valid driver’s license and for being within 25 feet of the parking lot at Park Vista Community High School in Lake Worth. A warrant was issued for his arrest.

Zachary Cruz is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail. His brother, Nikolas Cruz, is being held in the Broward County Jail awaiting trial and is facing the death penalty for 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder.
