Tyler Olander’s latest legal snafu has been cleared up.
According to a report from Dave Borges of the New Haven Register, Olander plead guilty to driving without a license. He paid a $75 fine and had the charges dropped. He was initially charged with DUI, but Borges is reporting that there were two breathalyzer tests taken that recorded Olander below Conneticut’s legal limit, so the state declined to pursue charges.
Olander was arrested earlier this month, the second time that he’s been arrested in 2013, and was once again suspended indefinitely from the team.
It’s unclear if the most serious charges being dropped will result in a reinstatement to the UConn team, but Olander was seen at this weekend’s ceremony to honor Jim Calhoun. Without Olander in the lineup, UConn will be playing without their biggest and most experienced front court player. Olander averaged 4.3 points and 3.7 boards last season, which should tell you just how thin UConn is up front. They have a loaded perimeter attack, but the Huskies need the big fella on the floor.
