Five football players from Notre Dame are in some trouble this morning after a traffic stop led to all of them being arrested. They were initially pulled over for speeding and during a search of the car, police found a gun and some marijuana.


Senior safety Max Redfield, redshirt freshman cornerback Ashton White, freshman wide receiver Kevin Stepherson, sophomore running back Dexter Williams and sophomore linebacker Te’von Coney were each charged with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor. Redfield, Stepherson and Williams were also charged with possession of a handgun without a license, also a misdemeanor.

The marijuana charge is not something that is a big deal at the end of the day but Notre Dame is not your average big time football program. The strict beliefs of the university could cost these players big time. As far as the gun charge, they are lucky to only be charged with a misdemeanor for that because if they were in New York, that gun charge would have been a big problem.

Redfield has been a starter at safety the past two seasons. He was the Irish’s fourth-leading tackler in 2015.Williams gained 81 yards on 21 carries last season.
