In court Monday, Judge Douglas Fahl said he was concerned about the large amount of marijuana Swanigan was found with, but he accepted the plea agreement as written because Swanigan was a first-time offender. Fahl sentenced Swanigan to 180 days suspended. He was ordered to complete a substance abuse evaluation and comply with any prescribed treatment.
According to Whitley County Jail records, Swanigan, 23, was booked into the facility early Wednesday on preliminary charges of marijuana possession. He was taken into custody by the Columbia City Police Department and booked into the jail at 3:05 a.m.
The 2015 IndyStar Mr. Basketball winner known by fans as “Biggie” bonded out of jail at 4:45 a.m. Records indicate he will appear in court on Dec. 28. Additional information about the circumstances surrounding Swanigan’s arrest has not been released. Formal charges in Swanigan’s case are still pending.

Spoelstra has accepted an invitation to join the USA Basketball coaching staff for its Olympic preparations in Las Vegas next month. The Miami Heat coach, who went head-to-head against Popovich and San Antonio in the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals, will be involved coaching the U.S. select team — a group of players that will be brought in to practice and scrimmage against the Olympic roster.
“I really just want to be a part of the program,” Spoelstra said. “I’m always pushing myself to get better in the offseasons; I go visit people and all that stuff. This is going to be a basketball immersion. I mean, the dinners, the team meetings … for where I am right now in my career, I think this is the perfect thing for a summer of development.”
