Rees Not Charged With A Felony

Rees Not Charged With A Felony

Tommy Rees wasn't charged with the felony and was instead charged with 4 misdemeanors. Calabrese was charged with 1 misdemeanor.

Rees and linebacker Carlo Calabrese were arrested after a confrontation with police who arrived at a “loud party” less than a mile from campus. Calabrese, 21, was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, while Rees, 19, faces two misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement and one count each of battery and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.

According to prosecutors, Rees refused to stop running as officers pursued him. A passing cabdriver pulled over in a position to block Rees, prosecutors said, and Rees lifted his right knee into the lower chest area of an approaching officer, “knocking the wind out of him.”

The cabdriver grabbed Rees “in order to keep him from running away,” prosecutors said, and Rees was pepper-sprayed when he continued to struggle against police and the cabdriver on the pavement. That resulted in the misdemeanor battery charge for what prosecutors deemed “rude, angry or insolent” contact.

During the incident, Calabrese attempted to “intervene on behalf of Rees,” Trent said, and allegedly told officers, “My people will get you.”

Members of a crowd witnessing the incident pulled Calabrese back, according to police, but Calabrese broke free and repeated the “My people will get you” comment and subsequently was arrested. He posted $150 bond and was released.

I'm pretty sure that this wasn't posted yet. I went through the last Rees thread and no mention of charges were given. If it was, apologies and delete this.

Semi-OT: Installing the 3-3-5 Stack

Semi-OT: Installing the 3-3-5 Stack

Submitted by Magnus on May 3rd, 2012 at 10:48 AM

The program where I work is considering installing the 3-3-5 as its base defense.  I'm sure there were some people around these parts who studied the 3-3-5 when Michigan installed it (or tried to, anyway).  Did anybody find any good resources (books, DVDs, websites, etc.) on coaching and installing the 3-3-5?  I have a decent understanding of how the defense works, alignments, etc., but I'm looking to consume as much as I can.  And even if we don't make the switch, that type of material could be useful down the road.

Thanks in advance.

They were at a party on campus when police showed up. Rees is arrested for resisting law inforcement, minor consumption, public intoxication, and battery to law inforcement, one of which is a felony. Calabrese was released from jail already, but Reese remains behind bars. Story: http://www.wndu.com/mobi?storyid=149965735 This is unconfirmed at this point, but I heard from someone who was there that the police arrived and asked that the music be turned down. Rees then went up to one and kicked him without provocation. He was then maced and arrested.
