Irish backup receiver arrested in Ohio
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Notre Dame reserve receiver Will Mahone is facing felony charges of assault on a police officer, intimidation of a public servant and vandalism after being arrested in his Ohio hometown.
Mahone appeared before an Austintown judge Monday to face those three charges as well as misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for an incident Saturday night in Austintown, about 70 miles southeast of Cleveland. A court spokeswoman says Mahone entered not guilty pleas on the misdemeanor charges, but the court didn’t accept an initial plea on the felony charges.
Judge David D’Apolito set bond for Mahone at $75,000 and scheduled a pretrial hearing for July 11. Mahone remained in the Mahoning County Jail on Monday afternoon. His lawyer, James Gentile, declined comment to The Associated Press.
