Observer Staff Report | Monday, July 7, 2014
Former junior wide receiver Will Mahone is no longer enrolled at Notre Dame after his arrest in Ohio last month on five charges, including three felonies.
Sports information director Michael Bertsch confirmed Mahone’s enrollment status in an email to The Observer on Monday Mahone’s attorney, James Gentile, said his client would like to return to Notre Dame but does not expect to be allowed to return to school as long as the felony charges are pending, the South Bend Tribune reported.
Mahone was suspended indefinitely from all football-related activities June 16. He was charged with three felonies — assault of a police officer, intimidation of a public servant/party official and vandalism of a government entity — and two misdemeanors — resisting arrest and disorderly conduct — in Mahoning County, Ohio, on June 15.
He had a pretrial hearing schedule Monday, at which a July 23 preliminary hearing was set. Mahone, a native of Austintown, Ohio, saw playing time in only two games during his career at Notre Dame, both in his sophomore season.
