Notre Dame wide receiver Will Mahone was arrested on five offenses Sunday in his home state of Ohio.

Mahone, a junior who converted from running back to slot receiver in the spring, was booked at the Mahoning County Justice Center for disorderly conduct, assault on a police officer, resisting arrest, intimidation of a public servant and vandalism of a government entity.

Three of the charges are felonies: Assault on a police officer, a first degree felony; intimidation of a public servant, a third degree felony; and vandalism of a government entity, a fifth degree felony. Mahone's hometown of Austintown is located in Mahoning County and is a suburb of Youngstown, where Mahone was booked.

Notre Dame officials had no comment about Mahone's arrest or his standing with the football team or university Sunday night.

Last week, coach Brian Kelly said Mahone had begun participating in summer workouts following surgery on a fractured right foot in March that kept him sidelined for most of spring practice. The former four-star recruit dealt with a high ankle sprain last year and was buried on Notre Dame's running back depth chart behind Cam McDaniel, Tarean Folston and George Atkinson.

Mahone only saw brief appearances against Michigan and Purdue in 2013 and redshirted the 2012 season. He likely wasn't going to be part of Notre Dame's two-deep at slot receiver this coming season, with Amir Carlisle and C.J. Prosise the likely options at that position.
