Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees and linebacker Carlo Calabrese were arrested early this morning after police were called to a home on reports of a loud party.

The 19-year-old Rees, who will be a junior in the fall, was apprehended after he allegedly ran from police and fought with an officer during an altercation outside a home at 716 N. Notre Dame Ave. about 12:30 a.m., police said.

Rees, from Lake Forest, Ill., was arrested for public intoxication, resisting law enforcement, minor consumption and battery to an officer, the latter of which is a felony charge.

The 21-year-old Calabrese, from Verona, N.J., was arrested for disorderly conduct and has since bonded out of the St. Joseph County Jail for $150.

Rees was still being held at the jail this morning on no bond.

When South Bend police arrived at the home just south of the Notre Dame campus, they reportedly found open containers of beer and other alcohol beverages in the backyard.

Officers reported that several people began jumping over a fence when they arrived and, specifically, observed a group of five men attempting to jump over a fence and ordered them to stop, said Capt. Phil Trent, South Bend police spokesman.

Rees was the only one of that group who ran from the scene, Trent said.

The officer chased Rees around the home and ordered him to stop, according to a police report. When the officer tried to grab him, an altercation ensued and the two fell to the ground, Trent said.

On the ground, the officer allegedly was kneed in the abdomen by Rees, which knocked the wind out of him and led him to pepper spray Rees. Once in handcuffs, Trent said Rees still attempted to resist.

Calabrese, meanwhile, verbally reacted to the arrest of Rees and would not stand on the sidewalk when ordered to by police, Trent said.

Calabrese's friends reportedly attempted to hold Calabrese back, but he con-tinued to yell things at officers that were interpreted as threats, leading to his arrest.

At one point, Trent said Calabrese told officers: "My people will get you."
