Police say when an officer told Mahone to get on the ground, Mahone yelled an obscenity at him and called him "white boy." The police report says Mahone wouldn't comply when the officer tried to handcuff him and after being handcuffed and told he was under arrest he told the officer: "Take these cuffs off and I'll kill you."

The report says Mahone tried to break free from officers as he was being brought to the police car and hit his head against the head of a police officer. The report says Mahone then continued to threaten to kill the officers and tried to kick out the back window of the police car. Police say Mahone then began spitting on the windows and seat of the police car so they had to put a spit mask on him.

Police say they brought Mahone to St. Elizabeth Health Center so a cut they say he sustained under his left eye before they arrived could be treated. They say Mahone continued to act irate and screamed obscenities at police and hospital staff.

Notre Dame officials said the university is aware of the incident and "is confident that it will be handled in a prompt and professional manner through the criminal justice system." It also said internal discipline is handled privately. Spokesman Dennis Brown said Mahone was still enrolled as a student Monday afternoon.
