The jailbird who beat up a Rikers guard and was then bailed out by the Robert F. Kennedy foundationis back in jail after he skipped two court dates last week.

Rickeem Parker, 18, was picked up in the Bronx for a violation of probation last Wednesday, the same day he dodged both court appearances, law enforcement sources said.

He’s now remanded to the Robert N. Davoren Center, city records show.

The probation stemmed from a 2016 case in the Bronx, according to court records — but the case is sealed, reps from the Bronx DA said.

Sources said Parker was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and for cocaine possession in that case.

But Parker violated his probation in September, when he was arrested for allegedly assaulting a straphanger in a Queens subway station, and so officials picked him back up after he was freed by RFK in October, according to sources.

He had a probation hearing and a court date in the Queens assault case last Wednesday but didn’t bother to show up to either, according to law enforcement sources.

Parker, who has 9 prior arrests, was bailed by RFK on Oct. 12 for $1,500 in the assault case. He was freed just one week after allegedly beating up a Rikers guard in a caught-on-camera brawl on Oct. 5.

The arrest last week was not related to the guard fight, according to sources. The Bronx DA is still investigating that case, officials said.

Neither RFK nor Parker’s lawyer responded to a request for comment.

Parker’s next court date is Dec. 19.
