A Richland County man granted clemency by President Barack Obama’s initiative to commute drug sentences for non-violent offenders was arrested and charged once again

Daron Benjamin Swygert, 43, was booked back on July 24, 2017 and charged with trafficking crack cocaine (3rd offense).

Swygert was arrested following a 6-month investigation based off a tip received from an anonymous source to the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.

According to a sheriff’s department incident report, Swygert was spotted near Sunset Drive after several warrants were issued for his arrest.

Swygert, the report said, eventually admitted to using and selling crack cocaine.
