Notre Dame linebacker Carlo Calabrese has been charged with a misdemeanor count of intimidation for allegedly making threatening remarks to a police officer after quarterback Tommy Rees was arrested. The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office announced the charge against Calabrese on Wednesday. Police had recommended on May 3 that he be charged misdemeanor disorderly conduct. According to a probable cause affidavit, Calabrese became upset when he saw Rees being placed under arrest and twice told a police officer, ''My people will get you.'' Rees was pepper-sprayed and arrested May 3 after allegedly running from an off-campus party and resisting arrest. He was charged with battery, two counts of resisting law enforcement and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor. Both players are due in court Thursday.
