UConn junior Tyler Olander was arrested on charges of trespassing early Thursday morning while on spring break in Panama City Beach, Florida.
Olander, 20, was brought in on the charges around 3 a.m. He was released from Bay County Jail Thursday afternoon, according to the records department.
Olander is the second UConn player to be arrested since February. His frontcourt mate, Enosch Wolf, was arrested Feb. 11 by campus police on charges of third-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He has yet to enter a plea, and his next court appearance is scheduled for April 24.
Aside from a 16-point performance against Notre Dame, the 6-foot-9 junior struggled for the majority of the season. Olander, a Mansfield native, averaged just 4.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game before fracturing his left foot in a late-season loss to South Florida. Surgery on the foot went “flawlessly”, the Hartford Courant’s Dom Amore tweeted Wednesday.
Olander’s case will be heard in court Friday at 4 p.m., according to the sheriff’s office.
