A man just released from prison for taking hostages at one of Hillary Rodham Clinton's New Hampshire campaign offices in 2007 has been arrested again.

Leeland Eisenberg was arrested Monday night on charges of violating terms of his probation by not plugging in an electronic monitoring bracelet to be worn around his ankle.

Eisenberg said at a hearing Tuesday that he didn't have enough outlets to charge it.

He was released on probation Nov. 18 after serving two years for strapping on a fake bomb and threatening to blow up Clinton's campaign headquarters in Rochester as he held several hostages.
