Tommy Rees Arrested: More Details, Including Reddit Breaking The Story

Likely former Notre Dame Fighting Irish starter Tommy Rees was arrested late Wednesday night for resisting arrest, along with linebacker Carlo Calabrese. Rees now faces a felony charge for battery, and Calabrese is out on bond. While this may help narrow down Brian Kelly's options in the great Irish quarterback derby, there's still a story to get to the bottom of.

The Notre Dame beat guys have been doing a great job all morning, but perhaps the earliest report on the story actually came from an essentially anonymous user at Reddit's college football sub:

This is a throwaway account for obvious reasons. He was at a party of my friends off campus. Cops came to warn them to turn down the music. Tommy goes up to a cop and kicks him. Not warranted at all. None of them were getting arrested yet, and he kicked them. Then some other cop comes up to him and maces him.

EDIT Bye Bye Turnover Tommy

Edit2 Some other football players were involved as well. I know one or two lineman were there. My friend did not recognize them. As soon as I get names, I will post them.

The police reaction to all that kicking and stuff:
