Four arrested, nine asked to leave Navy game

Joseph McMahon | Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) director Phil Johnson said four people were arrested and nine were asked to leave the game against Navy Saturday.

The total for people escorted out of Notre Dame Stadium is the lowest total all season. Police also did not issue a single summons outside the stadium.

Johnson said three people were arrested on campus outside the stadium, “one for public intoxication and disorderly conduct, one for public intoxication and indecent exposure and one for trespass.  Those arrested were taken to the St. Joseph County Jail.”

Johnson said one other person was arrested inside the stadium for public intoxication, while nine people were removed through the public safety office for “violation of stadium rules, mostly for impairment or possession of alcohol.”

Johnson said NDSP has been assisted in its game day efforts all year by South Bend Police, County Police, Mishawaka Police, Indiana State Police and Indiana State Excise Police.
