Kevin Stepherson’s string of arrests continued on Friday. 

According to an arrest report obtained by Irish Sports Daily, the former Notre Dame wide receiver was arrested for possession of marijuana, visiting a common nuisance, and possession of paraphernalia in Whitley County. The arrest report said Stepherson was released on bond Saturday morning with a court date set for Monday.

Stepherson was dismissed from Notre Dame’s football team earlier this month after being suspended indefinitely in December following a pair of arrests. Stepherson was charged with possession of marijuana, speeding and driving without a valid driver's license in Marshall County following an arrest on Dec. 14. The next day, he was arrested for allegedly shoplifting at University Park Mall in Mishawaka and later charged with conversion.

In Aug. 2016, Stepherson was arrested for possession of marijuana in Fulton County. He pleaded guilty and was granted a conditional discharge.

Stepherson, a 20-year-old sophomore, remained enrolled at Notre Dame at the start of the spring semester.
