A former South Bend cop busted for dealing steroids faces 15 years in prison when he's sentenced next month.

Tony Macik, 39, was convicted this week on felony steroid charges after being arrested in a drug raid back in October.

The arrest at Eagle Lake in Cass County came after an investigation by the county drug enforcement team, the FBI and U.S. postal inspectors.

As part of a no-contest plea deal with prosecutors, Macik was convicted on three felony counts and various other charges were dropped.

The former officer has been in trouble before. In 2007, Macik pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault charges after getting into a fight with one of his wife's co-workers.

Macik left the force after the chief recommended he be fired by the South Bend Board of Public Safety.

He is scheduled for sentencing April 16.
