Not Guilty Plea Entered for Notre Dame QB Rees
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a May 3 incident in which police used pepper spray to subdue him after an off-campus party.

Rees is charged with one count of battery, two counts of resisting law enforcement and one count of illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor. Rees didn't speak during Thursday's court hearing, which lasted less than a minute, and the pleas were entered on his behalf. Neither Rees nor defense attorney George Horn would comment afterward. Rees is due back in court July 17.

Linebacker Carlo Calabrese faces a misdemeanor count of intimidation for the same incident. He is scheduled to be in court June 21.
