Officers report one of the drivers was Swenson and that he had slurred speech. He reportedly told police that the other two vehicles pulled out in front of him and that he went up on the curb. An officer asked if he had been drinking or doing drugs and he reportedly said no.

He reportedly agreed to do a Standard Field Sobriety Test. Officer Cory Vincent reports that he observed four out of six clues on the Horizontal Glaze Nystagmus test and six out of eight clues on the walk and turn, and three out of four clues on the one leg stand test. Swenson was arrested and transported to the Ponca City Police Department where he reportedly refused to take the state’s test.

Judge David Wilkie set bond at $50,000 and ordered him to have no alcohol or marijuana if released on bond. Bond in three pending case was revoked.

Swenson is facing a felony count of assault and battery on a police officer, and misdemeanor charges of DUI, possession of CDS and transporting an open bottle of liquor.

That charge was filed on June 23, 2020 after he was arrested by Tonkawa police. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in that case on Aug. 23.

On Dec. 7, 2012 Swenson was charged with a felony count of lewd molestation. He was convicted on the charge on April 2, 2013 and sentenced to five years in prison with all but 60 days suspended.

On March 11, 2015, Swenson was charged with a felony count of failure to register as a sex offender. He was convicted on the charge on Nov. 27, 2017 but a motion to revoke the suspended sentence was filed on June 23, 2020.
