Saturday August 20th, 2016

Six Notre Dame players were arrested in separate incidents that took place Friday night and Saturday morning in Indiana, according to CSNChicago.

Five of those players — senior safety Max Redfield, sophomore linebacker Te'von Coney, sophomore running back Dexter Williams, redshirt freshman cornerback Ashton White and freshman receiver Kevin Stepherson — were booked on possession on marijuana charges. 

Redfield, Stepherson and Williams were also booked on charges of possessing a handgun without a license. Both of those charges are misdemeanors.

Senior cornerback Devin Butler faces a felony charge after being booked for battery to a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest. 

Butler was arrested in South Bend, while the other incident took place in Fulton County.

According to a Notre Dame spokesman Paul Browne, Butler could face dismissal from the school.

"Any student arrested on a felony charge also faces dismissal from the university. The university will determine if additional sanctions should apply to any or all of the students charged," Browne said in a statement.
