The younger brother of accused Florida high school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, has been arrested and charged with probation violation, the SunSentinel is reporting.

Cruz was arrested again on Tuesday, May 1, for violating his probation.

Cruz was arrested this week for violating the terms of his parole.

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. His brother Nikolas is in jail in neighboring Broward County, charged with the shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida.

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.

He was ordered to stay away from the Parkland school and all other schools after a March 19 arrest. The brothers are both former Stoneman Douglas students. "We all drive past and walk past schools every day and many public parks are located near schools so I'm concerned if, as it appears, [Broward County Sheriff's Office] has violated him for going near a school", Kimok told ABC News in an email Wednesday. He was also caught driving without a valid license.

The Miami Herald says the Nexus Group representing Zachary Cruz, 18, will discuss the lawsuit on Thursday. "They allege that Zach went within 25 feet of a school - but that wasn't a condition we agreed to at his plea".

Also Wednesday, a nonprofit civil rights organization called Nexus Derechos Humanos said it is planning to file a federal lawsuit on Zachary Cruz's behalf challenging how he has been treated by law enforcement.

According to a press release, civil lawyers for Zachary Cruz said BSO, prosecutors and the courts "targeted, harassed and tortured" the teen, "engaging in an extortive campaign of intimidation because of the identity of his brother".
