The players involved include linebacker Te'Von Coney, safety Max Redfield, wide receiver Kevin Stepherson Jr., cornerback Ashton White and running back Dexter Williams. The trooper smelled marijuana, and a drug-sniffing dog confirmed marijuana was in the vehicle. Redfield, Stepherson and Williams also face a charge of possession of an unlicensed handgun.

Redfield was one of five Irish players arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana in an incident Friday night.

ESPN reports police arrested senior cornerback Devin Butler Saturday morning on two preliminary felony charges of battery to an officer and resisting law enforcement.

Now for the punishments according to the Notre Dame website. White was the driver of the vehicle.

The No. 9 college football team in the country may lose several players after five Notre Dame Fighting Irishmen were charged with marijuana possession during a traffic stop 45 miles south of South Bend on August 19.

As in every case of disciplinary action, the fate of all of the student athletes involved here will be determined by the University, not Kelly or the athletic department. Using a drug-sniffing dog, the marijuana was located as well as the handgun. When police ordered Butler to step back, he allegedly lunged at an officer, shoved him and started throwing punches. He was projected as a starter going into 2016 after totaling 64 tackles, fourth-most on the team, in 2015, but the year ended on a sour note as Redfield was suspended from the January 1 Fiesta Bowl for disciplinary reasons. When this happened, Devin Butler reportedly became very angry towards one of the women in the group.

He also said in a statement released Sunday the players could still face additional discipline from the university. That puts an interesting spin on the football future of Redfield, Stepherson and Williams, per Notre Dame policy.

Butler broke his left foot in June and wasn't expected to return until October at the earliest.

When The Observer contacted the St. Joseph County Jail booking desk again, it confirmed the incident occurred at 1631 South Bend Ave., which is the address of the Linebacker Lounge, a popular student bar located just off Notre Dame's campus.

Butler has played in 37 games over his career but was not expected to play in the Irish season opener on September 4th against the Texas Longhorns.
