UConn junior forward
The Bay County Sheriff's office confirmed Thursday night that Olander was released on his own recognizance.
Olander was arrested at Panama City Beach early Thursday and booked at 6:51 a.m., according to the Bay County Sheriff's Office. His case will be heard in court Friday at 4 p.m., according to the sheriff's office. The official charge is trespassing in a structure or conveyance. "Conveyance" means any motor vehicle, ship, vessel, railroad car, trailer, aircraft, or sleeping car; and to enter a conveyance includes taking apart any portion of the conveyance.
UConn is on spring break this week.
Olander, 20, is the second UConn player arrested in a little over a month.
Olander, a 6-foot-9 forward from Mansfield, averaged 4.3 points and 3.7 rebounds this season. He fractured his left foot late in the season and recently had surgery to stabilize the foot by inserting a pin. He will need six to eight weeks of rehabilitation.
A UConn spokesman said the school is aware of the arrest and the school had no comment as it investigates the incident.
