Notre Dame CB Arrested on Battery Charges; 6 Total Players Arrested in 24 Hours
Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly has to be absolutely beside himself at the moment after finding out 6 total players from his football team had been arrested in the last 24 hours.
“Senior safety Max Redfield, redshirt freshman cornerback Ashton White, freshman wide receiver Kevin Stepherson, sophomore running back Dexter Williams and sophomore linebacker Teâ€™von Coney were each charged with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Redfield, Stepherson and Williams were also charged with possession of a handgun without a license.”
“Police responded to the Linebacker, 1631 South Bend Ave., just after midnight for a report of a fight between some patrons and bar security. After officers broke up that fight, they went outside and saw several women fighting near the curb.
As police separated the women, Butler, who appeared to be “extremely irate,” walked toward one of the women and shoved her, said South Bend police Lt. Joseph Galea. When police ordered Butler to step back, he allegedly lunged at an officer, shoved him and started throwing punches.
After a brief scuffle, police were able to subdue Butler and handcuff him, Galea said. He was arrested on preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement and battery on a police officer. None of the charges were related to Butler shoving the woman, because the women left the scene before he was arrested. The officer was taken to a hospital to be evaluated for minor injuries, including a sore wrist.”
