Notre Dame football player arrested Sunday morning

Notre Dame wide receiver Javon McKinley was arrested and charged with three misdemeanors on Monday, one day after he allegedly punched two campus police officers.

Javon McKinley is not the biggest name on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and probably won't ever be after he correctly called an Uber after a drunken night, but things went downhill soon after. The officers said he had passed out in the vehicle and that they smelled alcohol on his breath. Two campus police officers woke him up and attempted to help him get back to his dorm room.

While assisting McKinley to his dorm, he pulled away from the officers and tried to head in the opposite direction of his dorm. When the officers identified themselves as police, he struggled with them, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Gregg Doyel, a sports columnist for the Indianapolis Star, tweeted late Monday that he'd be "stunned" if McKinley plays another down for the Irish, citing the "ugly details" of McKinley's arrest.

He was transported to the St. Joseph County Jail on preliminary charges.

After playing in six games his freshman year, McKinley missed the entire 2017 season with an injury before seeing the field for four games during the 2018 campaign.

'The incident is being handled by the criminal justice system, ' Notre Dame spokesperson Dennis Brown said in a statement. 'As for internal discipline, we do not publicly discuss specific cases and impose sanctions as warranted'.

McKinley, a junior originally from Corona, California, is expected back in court Tuesday to be arraigned, WSBT reports.
