Two Notre Dame parents arrested after inciting fight at Brothers

| Wednesday, February 26, 2020

Two parents of players on the Notre Dame lacrosse team were arrested Sunday night at Eddy Street’s Brothers Bar and Grill after starting a fight, reported the South Bend Tribune.

Authorities say they believe the fight broke out when a group of intoxicated parents was asked to leave after complaining about “poor service.” One of the parents then punched a Brothers employee.

Police responded to the incident at around 7:30 p.m., the article said. The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s office said neither man has been charged yet, and “both men have been released from jail.”

No one was seriously injured in the incident.

“It was just a small fight, no one had to go to the hospital,” South Bend police Sergeant Anthony Ieraci said in the article.

While the Tribune did not identify the two men involved, the names of both men matched the “listed names of the parents of two Notre Dame lacrosse players,” according to the newspaper. Furthermore, home addresses listed for the two men were located in the hometowns of the two lacrosse players.
