Early Sunday, Notre Dame Police Officer Adis Ibrekic and Lieutenant Laurie Steffen attempted to help the passenger of an Uber who was unresponsive around 3:50 a.m. Things went downhill from there.

The officers reportedly began helping him to his dorm room, but McKinley stopped, which is when officers noticed the smell of alcohol.

While assisting McKinley to his dorm, he pulled away from the officers and tried to head in the opposite direction of his dorm. Officers were concerned about McKinley "trying to wander off onto campus in his condition".

In the officers' attempt to restrain McKinley on a cold night, he reportedly punched both officers "in a rude, insolent or angry manner", causing pain.

McKinley has not logged any receptions during his career at Notre Dame.

In addition, Dorsey did not consult with any current Browns players about the potential fit or attitude in the locker room. It was only a matter of time before he found the next team that would be willing to give him a second chance.

On Monday, McKinley was charged with two class-A misdemeanor counts of battery resulting in bodily injury and one class-C misdemeanor count of illegal consumption of alcohol.

Gregg Doyel, a sports columnist for the Indianapolis Star, tweeted late Monday that he'd be "stunned" if McKinley plays another down for the Irish, citing the "ugly details" of McKinley's arrest.

"The incident is being handled by the criminal justice system", Notre Dame spokesperson Dennis Brown said told the Star.

McKinley has been released on bond and is due in court February 28.

A four-star recruit out of Corona, California, McKinley appeared in only six games in 2016 before suffering a broken left leg. He played in four games in 2018 - Ball State, Wake Forest, Syracuse and USC - without logging any stats. "As for internal discipline, we do not publicly discuss specific cases, and impose sanctions as warranted".
