Notre Dame WR Javon McKinley arrested for resisting law enforcement
Notre Dame wide receiver Javon McKinley was arrested early Sunday morning for some sort of incident in which he allegedly resisted law enforcement.
According to public records obtained by IrishSportsDaily.com, McKinley was charged with resisting law enforcement and battery. Details surrounding the incident are unclear, but the resisting law enforcement charge is defined as a person who “knowingly or intentionally flees from a law enforcement officer after the officer has, by visible or audible means, including operation of the law enforcement officer’s siren or emergency lights, identified himself or herself and ordered the person to stop.”
A spokesperson from Notre Dame said the school is aware of the situation and waiting for the legal process to play out.
“The incident is being handled by the criminal justice system. As for internal discipline, we do not publicly discuss specific cases, and impose sanctions as warranted.”
McKinley, a junior, has played sparingly since suffering a broken leg during his freshman season in 2016. He appeared in just three games for the Irish in 2018.
