Looks like Notre Dame has its very own BLM-inspired crime spree going on.
Last Saturday, South Bend, Indiana police officers observed a fight break out between two women at a local bar. The officers quickly stepped in to calm the boisterous patrons down. A bunch of Notre Dame football players happened to be watching, and one of them decided he didn’t like cops, so he tackled one of the officers, punched him repeatedly, and took his utility belt with the gun in it.
According to Fox News, Notre Dame cornerback Devin Butler had apparently shoved one of the women who were involved in the fight. Butler was asked by the officers to back away when he became enraged, and attacked one of them instead.
South Bend police spokesman Lt. Joe Galea said that Butler, “shouted profanities at the officers and started swinging his fists.”
Butler hit the officer in the side and the stomach several times after tackling him, and then tore his gun belt off.
Other officers used a taser on Butler, and the 181 lb. cornerback found out what the phrase “flopping like a fish out of water” actually means in real life.
The officer who Butler attacked was admitted to a local hospital for minor injuries and released.
Butler has been charged with “resisting law enforcement and battery of an officer,” according to Sports Illustrated. The charges are both felonies, and Butler could get up to 2 & a 1/2 years in prison.
The cornerback was immediately suspended from the football team, and Notre Dame spokesman Paul Browne said that any student arrested on felony charges could be kicked out of the school.
In a plot twist, Prosecutor Kenneth P. Cotter (a Democrat), said that he wants more time to study the case to make sure that Butler deserves to be charged. Butler apparently apologized saying that he was drunk and emotional, so, to Cotter that makes it OK to assault a police officer.
To top off Notre Dame’s crime spree, the night before Butler’s arrest, 5 other players were pulled over and arrested after marijuana and an unregistered firearm was found in their car.
Below are the Notre Dame players, including Butler.
I used to like Notre Dame, but I’m starting to think they need to get some new recruiters. The latest crop of players are more likely to end up career criminals rather than positive role models for inner city youth.
