FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Rep. Gary Condit's younger brother has posted bond on a marijuana charge but will remain in jail until he deals with his legal troubles in Key West.
Darrell Wayne Condit posted a $100 bond Tuesday. He had been arrested Saturday at a hotel for violating his probation and was later charged with possession of marijuana.
Monroe County officials in the Florida Keys say they've been seeking Condit since 1997 for failing to meet the conditions of his probation on a 1996 drunken driving charge.
Condit, 49, is the younger brother of California Rep. Gary Condit, whose relationship with missing federal intern Chandra Levy has been the focus of intense scrutiny.
The search for Darrell Condit escalated after police recalled the DUI case and his link to the congressman.
Darrell Condit's attorney, Robert S. Zack, said he had not been contacted by the FBI or D.C. police over the Levy investigation and doubted he would be, since Condit had not talked to his brother in almost a year.
