Nine people were taken into custody on Saturday, according to Phil Johnson, the director of Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP). Arrests were made by NDSP, the Indiana State Excise Police, St. Joseph County Police and South Bend Police Department.

This compares to 35 custodial arrests last week when Purdue visited and three custodial arrests during the October 7, 2006 Notre Dame-Stanford game according to an October 10, 2006 Observer article.

Outside the stadium, nine citations were issued for minor consuming alcohol, one person was cited for public indecency and one person was taken to jail after being arrested for public intoxication.

During the game, eight people were transported to jail for public intoxication, and seven others were ejected from the stadium for alcohol related violations of stadium rules.
