Season-high ejected from football game

John-Paul Witt | Tuesday, November 25, 2008

A season-high number of 22 people were ejected from the Stadium on Saturday for “violations of Stadium rules,” according to Assistant Director of Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) David Chapman.

Which rules were violated and information regarding consequences of the snowball throwing and marshmallow fight was not available as of press time.

Fourteen people were arrested Saturday on the Notre Dame campus, according to Chapman.

“The offenders were transported to the county jail,” he said. “One person was transported to the hospital for intoxication.”

At the Stadium, five people were arrested for public intoxication, two for public intoxication and disorderly conduct, one for resisting law enforcement and assault and one for resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct.

Outside the Stadium, two people were arrested for public intoxication, one for resisting law enforcement and public intoxication and two people were arrested for theft.

The 14 arrests and 22 ejections at the Syracuse game compare to 34 arrests on campus and nine ejections from the Stadium for the first home game against San Diego State University, 29 arrests and two ejections for the Michigan game, 35 arrests and three ejections for the Purdue game, nine arrests and seven ejections for the Stanford game and eight arrests and four ejections for the Pittsburgh game.

The Stanford and Pittsburgh games were designated as games for which parents of undergraduate students were allowed to purchase tickets.
