The brother of suspected Florida high school shooter Nikolas Cruz was arrested on Monday afternoon for trespassing at the school where 17 people were shot dead last month, according to the Broward County Sheriff’ Office.

Zachary Cruz, 18, told deputies he went to the campus of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to “reflect on the school shooting and soak it in,” according to the arrest report.

He was being held at the same Broward County jail in downtown Fort Lauderdale where his brother is being held, jail records on Monday night showed. Zachary Cruz was being held on a $25 bond, while his brother, Nikolas Cruz is charged with 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder, and has no bond, county records showed.

Nikolas Cruz, 19, is charged with carrying out the massacre at the high school in Parkland, Florida on Feb. 14.

Zachary Cruz was warned by school officials not to enter the school but “surpassed all locked doors and gates and proceeded to ride his skateboard through school grounds” and was arrested at 4:50 pm (2050 GMT), the report said.

The report said Zachary Cruz had no connections to Broward County at this time.

The sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on whether Zachary Cruz had legal representation.

The View’s Meghan McCain turns on Fauci after blaming him for resurgence of COVID-19 — then gets schooled by Whoopi Goldberg

Published

"The View's" Meghan McCain confessed that she has "turned" on Dr. Anthony Fauci.

During Thursday's show, the co-hosts addressed the new InStyle profile on Fauci, who has been barred from appearing on TV. Joy Behar loved the photo because it showed off his Italian heritage and how tough he is.

"I thank god every day that there are some adults left who are looking out for us," she said. "So, I thank Fauci. I thank even Mitt Romney for standing up when every coward in that Republican leadership has said nothing. Radio silence about every sin committed by [Trump]. I thank Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. I'm so happy there are a few adults left, and Fauci is one of them, and I want him to speak out more. Let's not -- this is worth repeating: Are you going to trust an ivy league educated epidemiologist like Fauci or somebody who tells you to drink bleach and face the sunlight to kill the virus? I mean, really."

Johnny Depp's head of security admitted Thursday he submitted the wrong photo to court to show how the Hollywood star's ex-wife Amber Heard had abused her husband and not the other way around.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star is suing the publisher and executive editor of Britain's The Sun newspaper over a 2018 story calling him a "wife-beater" who had repeatedly attacked the 34-year-old model and actress.

Both sides are trying to cast the other as the villain in a rocky two-year marriage that ended in an ugly 2017 divorce and several expensive lawsuits.

But eight days of hearings in London's High Court have so far shown the couple fighting almost ceaselessly after extravagant parties filled with copious amounts of drugs.
