A Notre Dame student has been charged in connection with an arrest caught on tape this season at a Notre Dame tailgate.

Benjamin Winter, 21, was charged with misdemeanor public intoxication.

The charges stem from this altercation, caught on tape and later posted to YouTube.

You can see a St. Joseph County officer push Winter before arresting him.

The officer had been accused of using excessive force in the arrest, but last week Sheriff Mike Grzegorek said other video evidence showed that the officer acted within reason, and Winter had two other encounters with police that day.

Winter will be in court on January 28.
