A Panama City Beach man accused of forcing a toddler to eat his own feces as punishment during potty training is now in more trouble in Tallahassee.

Don Reinhard was arrested in Bay County last month on aggravated child abuse charges.

On Wednesday, Reinhard was booked into the Leon County Jail on a violation of probation charge.

Court records show Reinhard was arrested for grand theft in 2014 after he was accused of stealing more than $700 worth of items at a Tallahassee Wal Mart.

Court records show he was sentenced to three years probation and was still on probation at the time of his arrest on child abuse charges.

Reinhard is being held without bond.
