Kevin Stepherson's most recent arrest will keep him in jail until next week.

Last week, former Notre Dame wide receiver Kevin Stepherson was arrested, yet again. It was his fourth arrest since enrolling at the school.

On Friday, Stepherson was booked on charges of possession of marijuana, hash oil, hash, visiting a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia. It was his third arrest in the last two months.

The Friday arrest is a violation of his probation. That means he will be cannot post a bond, and will be in jail until his hearing.

He is set to appear in court on February 6. From the South Bend Tribune:

"Kevin Stepherson was arrested Tuesday when arriving for a violation of probation hearing in Fulton County. Stepherson cannot post bond while he awaits his Feb. 6 hearing."

Stepherson was one of four players dismissed from the Notre Dame program earlier this month. Running backs Deon McIntosh and C.J. Holmes and defensive tackle Brandon Tiassum are also no longer with the program.

In December, Stepherson was pulled over and arrested for marijuana possession, speeding and reckless driving. The next day, he and Holmes were arrested for shoplifting.

The Tribune outlined some of the possibilities for Stepherson on February 6. From the report:

A judge will now decide to continue Stepherson's discharge conditions, put him on probation or sentence him on the marijuana charge, according to the Fulton County Prosecutor's Office.

It's been an embarrassing few months for Stepherson. Hopefully he can get things together going forward.
