Brian Kelly has to be screaming mad right now!
Five Notre Dame players were arrested Friday night after police stopped them for speeding and reported finding a handgun and marijuana in the car according to ESPN.com.
Senior safety Max Redfield, redshirt freshman cornerback Ashton White, freshman wide receiver Kevin Stepherson, sophomore running back Dexter Williams and sophomore linebacker Te’von Coney were each charged with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Redfield, Stepherson and Williams were also charged with possession of a handgun without a license.
An Indiana State Trooper stopped the players in Fulton County for driving 73 mph in a 60 mph zone, according to an ISP press release. The officer reported smelling marijuana coming from the car, and a police dog indicated that there were drugs in the vehicle. Officers found a handgun and marijuana after searching the car, according to the report.
Redfield has been a starter at safety the past two seasons — while Williams gained 81 yards on 21 carries last season.
