The former Fighting Irish wide receiver was arrested again.

Former Notre Dame wide receiver Kevin Stepherson has been arrested again. It's the former wideout's fourth arrest since he arrived at ND.

Stepherson was arrested Friday night in Whitley County (Ind.). He was booked on charges of possession of marijuana, hash oil, hash, visiting a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia, per Irish Sports Daily.

The Florida native was a three-star recruit in the 2016 class. He committed to Notre Dame over Miami, Michigan, Michigan State and North Carolina, among other programs.

This was the three-star recruit's third run-in with the law over the last two months. Stepherson was arrested in early December for marijuana, speeding and driving without a valid driver’s license. One day later, he was arrested for shoplifting.

Brian Kelly indefinitely suspended the wide receiver in late December. Earlier this month, he dismissed him from the team.

Stepherson totaled 44 catches for 821 yards and 10 touchdowns during his career in South Bend. He finished the 2017 regular season with back-to-back 100-yard games.

Overall, this is Stepherson's fourth arrest since he arrived at Notre Dame in 2016. The arrests have come in four different counties.

Notre Dame announced Stepherson's dismissal a little more than a week ago. He was one of four players dismissed by Brian Kelly.
