NDPD: Battery committed at Bookstore Basketball court

According to the Notre Dame Police Department (NDPD), a battery was allegedly committed at the Bookstore Basketball court on April 8. The department’s crime log reports that the incident took place between 6:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Daniel O'Shea, a co-president of the Bookstore Basketball tournament, wrote in an email to The Observer Monday that he was at the courts and Bookstore Basketball games were going on when the alleged incident occurred.

However, O'Shea wrote that the alleged battery was not at all related to Bookstore Basketball.

"I recently called NDPD today and was connected with the lead detective on the case to get more information," O'Shea wrote Monday afternoon. "After a brief phone call with the detective, the alleged battery was a part of a pickup game likely involving South Bend natives who are able to use the courts when we do not have games scheduled on them."

Editor's note: This article was updated Monday evening when the Bookstore Basketball tournament replied to The Observer's request for comment about the alleged incident at the Bookstore Basketball court on April 8. A previous headline of this article specified that the alleged incident took place at the Bookstore Basketball tournament — while in fact the alleged incident only took place at the Bookstore Basketball court.
