THE TELETYPE:
According to a report by the South Bend Tribune, local police arrested Ducks prospect Kyle Palmieri and fellow Notre Dame freshman Riley Sheahan for minor consumption Sunday morning.  Palmieri was additionally charged with resisting arrest after he fled police and reportedly reached for an officer's taser during an ensuing struggle.   

Palmieri, Sheahan and a third party were seen standing in the bed of a moving pickup truck at 2:30am Sunday.  Palmieri, 19, had a blood alcohol content of 0.10 when checked by officers.  Sheahan, 18 and a hopeful for this year's draft, had a blood alcohol content of 0.12 and was additionally charged with public drunkenness.

Palmieri was dismissed from the US Development Team last year for violating the conduct policy, and the rumors of why he was dismissed drew mixed responses.  Palmieri won a Gold at the World Juniors this year, but he and Sheahan had a lukewarm season, statistically, for Notre Dame.

UPDATE:  This post previously stated the date this occurred as yesterday, not Sunday.
