Brazilian former president Michel Temer was arrested for a second on corruption charges on Thursday.

Amid a media scrum, Temer left his home in Sao Paulo headed for the headquarters of the federal police.

On Wednesday, a judge ordered the ex-president to return to jail while he's investigated in several cases of alleged corruption related to Operation Car Wash, the largest corruption scandal in Latin American history.

Temer was first arrested in March but freed on appeal five days later by a judge who argued he did not pose a risk to the investigation.

Temer, who came to power after leading the impeachment of his predecessor Dilma Rousseff in August 2016, denies any wrongdoing.
