    Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees faces two misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement and one count of battery and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.

    A court date has been set for Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees to face charges from an arrest early Thursday.

    The Lake Bluff native will appear before a judge at 8 a.m. on May 17 to face two misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement and one count of battery and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor, according to a Chicago Tribune report.

    Rees was arrested alongside teammate Carlo Calabrese Thursday morning after a confrontation with police.

    South Bend police received a call about the party and arrived around 12:30 a.m. When trying to break it up, police said Rees lifted a knee to an officer and was pepper -sprayed while on the ground.

    Rees, 19, was released from jail on Thursday on $250 cash bond. Calabrese, 21, was released after posting $150 bond. He faces a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.

    Rees led the team to four straight victories as starting quarterback in 2010 and became the first freshman quarterback in Notre Dame history to lead the Irish to a victory in a bowl game, according to the team.
