Notre Dame cornerback Devin Butler was arrested Saturday morning near a bar in South Bend, Indiana, on two preliminary charges of battery against a police officer and resisting a police officer.
Notre Dame student newspaper the Observer first reported Butler’s arrest.
Per the Observer report, Butler was “brought to a holding cell at the St. Joseph County Jail” after the two preliminary charges were handed down. The arrest took place at 12:28 a.m.
Fortuna added that South Bend police confirmed Butler was “arrested at 1631 South Bend Ave., which is the address of the Linebacker Lounge, a popular bar right off Notre Dame’s campus.”
Butler is entering his senior season at Notre Dame. The Washington, D.C., native has played in 37 games for the Fighting Irish over the past three seasons, though he was not expected to be ready for the start of this season on Sept. 4 against Texas.
Butler had surgery to repair a broken left foot in June and could be out until October. He broke the same foot during Notre Dame’s loss against Ohio State in January’s Fiesta Bowl.
