Five Notre Dame football players were arrested after Indiana state police said a trooper found marijuana and a loaded handgun in their car, while a sixth player was arrested in a separate incident and accused of punching a police officer.

State police said a trooper stopped a car Friday night in Fulton County about 35 miles south of South Bend for speeding. The trooper detected the odor of marijuana and with the help of a drug-sniffing dog, he found the marijuana and handgun, police said.

The university confirmed all five of the people arrested in that incident were football players: Ashton White, Max Redfield, Kevin Stepherson Jr, Dexter Williams and Te’von Coney.

All remained jailed on Saturday at the Fulton County jail in Rochester on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge. Redfield, Stepherson and Williams face an additional misdemeanor charge of possession of an unlicensed handgun.

The school also confirmed the arrest of a sixth player, Devin Butler, early Saturday in South Bend. – READ MORE
