    Former #2 NBA Draft Pick Arrested While Carrying Gun
    2/22/2011 12:45 AM PST by TMZ Staff




    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Stromile Swift -- the #2 pick in the 2000 NBA Draft -- was arrested in Shreveport, LA earlier this month after arriving to a woman's home with a gun in his pocket ... only to find Shreveport PD waiting for him.


    Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the drama began on February 12 when cops responded to a vandalism complaint from a woman named Chaquinita Pouncy ... who also told police she'd been receiving threatening text messages from Swift.

    While cops were conducting their investigation at Pouncy's home -- Swift happened to drive up ... and emerged from his car with a handgun in his pocket.

    We're told Swift was "compliant" with officers and was eventually arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault and improper telephone communications -- both misdemeanors.

    The 31-year-old -- who reportedly signed a $22 million contract with the Houston Rockets in 2005 -- was taken to a nearby station ... where he was booked and released after posting $778 bail.

    Swift starred at LSU and was drafted second overall by the Vancouver Grizzlies in 2000. But he never lived up to the hype and now plays for the Shandong Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association.

    People like to talk about Kwame Brown being a bust, but this guy has been an even bigger bust than Kwame, who is at least still in the NBA and producing consistently.

    Agreed to think he had to reunite with Jordan to make this happen. Silas has done well with him.

    Nine-year NBA veteran Stromile Swift was arrested Thursday for allegedly stalking his ex-girlfriend, reports KTBS in Shreveport.

    The report says Swift, 31, was arrested after police were called to a domestic dispute. The report states the woman says her and Swift were arguing and then he followed her in a vehicle as she tried to get away. Swift was arrested without conflict. A handgun and shotgun were found in his vehicle.

    There's a history here as Swift was arrested in February for aggravated assault of the same woman. Yikes.

    Swift, who hasn't been in the NBA for two years, played his college ball at LSU and was the second overall pick in 2000 of the then Vancouver Grizzlies. He later signed with the Rockets as a free agent, then rejoined his old franchise but this time in Memphis, then had stops in New Jersey and Phoenix. He most recently played professionally in China.

    I remember this guy, he used to be badass on NBA Live. Whenever I played in franchise mode he always became an all-star. Too bad that was like 10 years ago.

    I was thinking the other day whatever happened to this guy.

    He was actually a pretty solid big man and I would've liked to have had him in our rotation.

    StroSwift was the perfect example of a Player gifted with athleticsm, length, hops and everything underneath the sun but had no clue how to use those gifts.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.
