Notre Dame wide receiver Will Mahone was arrested Saturday in Ohio on five charges including several felonies, according to a report from Chris Hine of the Chicago Tribune.

The junior reserve, who played just two games last season as a converted running back, was arrested in his native Austintown and faces three felony charges: assault of a police officer, intimidation of a public servant/party official and vandalism of a government entity.

Mahone, a redshirt in 2012, was found by police “highly-intoxicated” and head-butting and punching cars on Saturday, attempting to fight multiple people in the process, according to documents cited in the report. In the midst of being subdued by several officers, Mahone whipped his head back and hit an officer in the forehead, the report stated. A spit net was placed on his head once in the police vehicle, but he continued to berate officers and later the medical staff when he was transported to a nearby hospital for a laceration above his left eye.

Notre Dame released a statement on Monday saying the school is confident the situation will be handled "in a prompt and professional manner through the criminal justice system."

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