Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees has been arrested and jailed on a preliminary felony charge after a confrontation with police early Thursday.

The 19-year-old was arrested on multiple charges, including resisting law enforcement, battery to law enforcement, minor consumption and public intoxication, St. Joseph County Police Sgt. Bill Redman told reporters.

Notre Dame linebacker Carlo Calabrese was also arrested on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct, but released after posting $150 bond.

"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," Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown said in a statement. "Internal discipline is handled privately, in accord with our own policies and federal law."
