TAMPA, Fla. - Disgraced former NBA referee Tim Donaghy is back behind bars.

According to Hillsborough County jail records, Donaghy was being held without bond Tuesday for a federal rule violation. Details were not available.

A message left early Tuesday at the office of Donaghy's attorney was not immediately returned.

Donaghy was given a 15-month sentence last year after he said he took thousands from a professional gambler in exchange for inside tips on games — including games he worked. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to engage in wire fraud and transmitting betting information through interstate commerce.

Donaghy was moved to a halfway house this year after serving part his sentence in a federal prison camp. He was scheduled for release in October.
