Carlo Calabrese was with quarterback Tommy Rees at a house party in South Bend less than one mile off campus. Police arrived and arrested Rees and Cabrese after an altercation with both of them.

Just before Carlo became vocal to the police, Rees was trying to escape arrest, but he was eventually caught, prosecutors said.

Once Rees was taken away by police, prosecutors said, Calabrese told the policeman arresting Rees ”My people will get you.” Prosecutors said the policeman asked Calabrese if he was threatening him, to which Calabrese allegedly repeated “My people will get you.”

Calabrese will have a Thursday morning court appearance; however, only his lawyer is expected to appear.

Here is the statement Brian Kelly made shortly after the arrest.

“I am aware of last night’s incident involving two of our football players,” Kelly said. “I am of course very concerned given the nature of the allegations, but I am still gathering information. I’ll withhold judgment until I can collect all the facts and speak with both Carlo and Tommy.”-Brian Kelly

Carlo played in every game last season and recorded over 35 tackles last season (37 overall). Well see what Brian Kelly and School Officials do to discipline Calabrese (and also Rees).
