SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 24 (UPI) -- Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen got into a fight when a man pushed his date at a South Bend, Ind., bar, a university source says.
Quoting an unnamed Notre Dame source, the South Bend Tribune reported Tuesday that Clausen, 22, and the man who allegedly pushed his female companion got into a scuffle Saturday night outside C.J.'s Pub, during which the man landed a punch on the quarterback's eye.
The pair then wrestled on the ground for a few moments before the fight was broken up and police responded to the scene but no arrests were made or reports filed, the newspaper said.
The incident adds to a downbeat season for the Irish, coming after a 33-30 loss in double overtime Saturday to Connecticut. Head Coach Charlie Weis dismissed the issue at his regularly schedule Tuesday press conference, telling reporters: "We're talking about (upcoming opponent) Stanford. You want to ask me about Stanford, I'm all ears."
