The Chicago Tribune reported on its website that South Bend police responded to a call of a loud party at around 12:30 a.m. on Notre Dame Avenue. Five or six people hopped a fence and ran from officers, Capt. Phil Trent of the South Bend Police Department told the Tribune. Rees was among those who ran.
Trent said Rees “actively resisted” and was subdued with pepper spray.
Rees is facing preliminary charges of resisting law enforcement, battery to law enforcement, minor consumption and public intoxication, according to television station WNDU.
Calabrese was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. He was released from jail after posting bond. Rees remains jailed.
Rees, a junior, started at quarterback most of the 2011 season and is a contender to be a starter this season. Calabrese is a senior linebacker.
Football coach Brian Kelly had no immediate comment, a university spokesman told the Tribune.
