SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) A Notre Dame cornerback accused of tackling a police officer and punching him in the side and stomach during an altercation outside a bar was charged Tuesday with felony counts of resisting law enforcement and battery against a public safety official.

Devin Butler was arrested Saturday and released on a $1,000 bond, but St. Joseph County Prosecutor Kenneth P. Cotter requested more time to investigate the case and determine what charges were appropriate.

Butler is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday. He couldn't be reached for comment Tuesday because he has an unlisted phone number. Court records don't indicate he has hired an attorney.
