Notre Dame Fighting Irish quarterback Tommy Rees caused quite a stir for the football program when he got arrested early Thursday morning after resisting police and trying to flee the scene of a party in South Bend, Indiana along with linebacker and teammate Carlo Calabrese. Now Rees is due in court to face four misdemeanor charges on May 17, according to Brian Hamilton of the Chicago Tribune.
The young QB was initially charged with public intoxication, resisting law enforcement, minor consumption and a felony charge of battery to law enforcement, but the felony count was reduced to a misdemeanor on Thursday afternoon. As for the school's internal disciplinary process, head football coach Brian Kelly said "I'll withhold judgment until I can collect all the facts and speak with both Carlo and Tommy" on Thursday.
