Tommy Rees & Carlo Calabrese Arrested Early Thursday Morning

The news broke in the early hours of Thursday morning May 3rd that two Notre Dame football players were arrested.

They are junior quarterback Tommy Rees and senior linebacker Carlo Calabrese.

As always, they will await the punishment of the judicial system and then face Res Life for punishment per Notre Dame's student guidelines.

Below is the report from the South Bend Tribune from early this morning:

NOTRE DAME -- St. Joseph County Police have confirmed to WSBT that two Notre Dame football players were arrested early Thursday morning.

South Bend Police were dispatched to a home on 716 North Notre Dame avenue just after 12:30 a.m.

According to Captain Phil Trent with South Bend police, officers were called to the house on a complaint of a noisy party. Officers saw five people jumping a fence to run away and they chased them down, catching Rees and Calabrese.

In an attempt to get away, Trent says Rees knocked an officer over and kneed him in the stomach.

Sgt. Bill Redman of St. Joseph County Police says Quarterback Tommy Rees and Linebacker Carlo Calabrese were booked into the St. Joseph County jail just after 1 a.m.

According to Redman, Rees was arrested for public intoxication, resisting law enforcement, minor consumption and battery to law enforcement-- a felony charge.

Police say that Rees was pepper-sprayed prior to being taken into police custody.

Calabrese was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Notre Dame issued this statement Thursday morning regarding the arrests:

"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. Internal discipline is handled privately, in accord with our own policies and federal law."

Calabrese bonded out for $150 at 3:42 am

Rees and Calabrese are due back in court May 17.

Rees is one of the 4 Notre Dame quarterbacks competing this year for a starting position on the Irish football team.

Now we wait and see what the fallout is from all of this.

This probably wasn't how Rees & Calabrese wanted to start their offseason.
