As first reported by Notre Dame’s student newspaper, The Observer, Notre Dame senior cornerback, Devin Butler, was arrested early Saturday morning.
The arrest took place at the location in which it occurred, 1631 South Bend Avenue at 12:28 AM. That is the address of the famed, Linebacker Lounge.
Butler, a Washington D.C. native, was charged with battery against a police officer and resisting arrest. He is still being held at the Saint Joseph County Jail as of this morning.
Butler started in one game last year against Stanford in the season finale. He was slated to start in the Fiesta Bowl as well against the Ohio State Buckeyes, but he broke his foot during bowl preparation in Arizona.
He was still recovering from that injury this past spring and fall camp. Butler was expected to start playing at some point in October to add depth to the Fighting Irish secondary.
While no other details have surfaced, it’s hard to say exactly what may happen to Devin Butler as it relates to his future at Notre Dame. He has had no other incidents that we know of while at Notre Dame, but none of that may matter with Notre Dame’s student code of conduct known as Res Life and du Lac.
