FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Gary Condit's younger brother 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.
