A Notre Dame hockey player landed in jail on Sunday after allegedly punching a female employee in the face at Brother's Bar and Grill in South Bend.
The alleged perpetrator, 22-year-old Jared Beers, is facing multiple charges including battery, intimidation, disorderly contract, resisting arrest, and public intoxication.
Beers, a junior at Notre Dame, was originally there at the restaurant to watch the Super Bowl among many others.
But officers say things turned ugly for the hockey player after the bar received complaints that he was harassing woman and stealing their drinks.
That is when security stepped in and asked him to leave, but employees say he did not go quietly.
Once at the doors of the bar, police say he then pushed a bouncer. So, a female manager stepped in to break it up.
That is when workers say Beers threatened the woman and punched her in the face.
According to the police report, Beers punched a female manager in the face, then while she was on the ground he stepped on her throat and pulled her hair.
A melee ensued shortly after and Beers fled the scene, leaving behind his wallet in the process.
The female manager who was victimized in this case was treated at a local hospital and is expected to be okay.
The university released the following statement on the matter: "The university is aware of this incident and is confident that it will be handled in a professional manner through the criminal justice system. University discipline is handled privately, in accord with our own policies and federal law."
