    Henry Claude Agnew, 36.

    A South Florida man who had his lengthy drug sentence commuted by former President Barack Obama last year is back behind bars facing a slew of drug charges.

    Henry Claude Agnew, 36, was arrested Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service in Broward County, jail records showed. Agnew was being held on a probation violation.

    Miami-Dade Criminal Court records showed Agnew was charged last month with a number of drug offenses, including cocaine and cannabis possession, selling cocaine and cannabis near a school and possession of cocaine and cannabis with intent to sell.

    Agnew was one of dozens of offenders who had their sentences commuted by President Obama in March 2016. Agnew was sentenced in November 2003 to 21 years and 8 months in prison with five years of supervised release.
