Professional basketball player Stromile Swift has been arrested in Shreveport on stalking charges involving an ex-girlfriend.
Swift had been arrested in February for an incident involving the same woman.
Shreveport police said they arrested the 31-year-old Swift about 9:40 p.m. Thursday after officers were called to a domestic dispute on the west side of the city. Police said a woman told them she had been arguing with Swift and he was following her in a vehicle as she tried to get away from him.
Patrol officers got a description of the vehicle and eventually arrested Swift without incident in the 3300 block of Ivy Lane.
Police said they found a shotgun and a handgun in Swift's vehicle.
The ex-girlfriend was not injured, police said.
Swift, of the 9500 block of Stonehaven Drive, was booked on a charge of stalking and later released on bond.
Swift was arrested last February on aggravated assault charges. Police said they were investigating a report of vandalism at the 28-year-old woman's southwest Shreveport residence when Swift showed up there with a gun.
Swift played at Fair Park High School and LSU before being drafted as the second overall pick in the 2000 NBA draft. He played in the NBA for nine years and now plays in the Chinese Basketball Association.
