Notre Dame police arrest two men on weapons, drug charges

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame Security Police officers arrested two men on weapons and drug charges following a traffic stop near campus Wednesday night.

A Notre Dame officer had been monitoring South Bend Police radio traffic when he heard the description of a vehicle involved in an incident.

A passerby called police when a silver Pontiac G6 stopped on the Angela Boulevard bridge. The caller said she tapped on the driver's side window and the driver sped away towards the Notre Dame campus.
