Notre Dame CB Devin Butler facing battery, resisting charges


The Notre Dame Fighting Irish could have taken a big hit Friday evening when cornerback Devin Butler was arrested on multiple charges. It seems to be a pretty strange situation for the senior going into the 2016 season.

ESPN reported that Butler was arrested early Saturday morning on charges of battery to law enforcement and resisting law enforcement. He was picked up at Linebacker Lounge, a popular bar just off Notre Dame’s campus and is currently still being held at St. Joseph County Jail.

Butler was already expected to miss at least the first portion of the season after suffering a broken foot earlier this summer. This is the same injury he suffered ahead of the Fiesta Bowl in January.

Over the last seasons, Devin Butler has appeared in 37 games, making three starts, and recorded 39 tackles, six pass deflections and one interception.

The Fighting Irish look to move forward without him for the foreseeable future as they open the season on Sept. 4 against Texas.
