Notre Dame wide receiver Will Mahone was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, intimidation of a public servant and vandalism of a government entity. The arrest took place in Mahone's hometown of Austintown, Ohio, a suburb of Youngstown.
Three of the charges are felonies: assault on a police officer (first degree), intimidation of a public servant (third degree) and vandalism of a government entity (fifth degree).
"The University is aware of this incident and is confident that it will be handled in a prompt and professional manner through the criminal justice system," read a statement from Notre Dame. "Internal discipline is handled privately, in accord with our own policies and federal law."
Mahone was just returning from a broken foot he suffered in March that caused him to miss most of spring practice. Originally a four-star running back, Mahone has spent the majority of his time in South Bend dealing with injuries, and because of it saw himself slip down on the depth chart. As a result he was converted to a slot receiver this spring, but between the injury and the arrest, you have to imagine it won't be easy for him to get on the field this fall.
