Notre Dame freshman quarterback Jimmy Clausen has entered a pretrial diversion program after receiving a misdemeanor citation for transporting alcohol as a minor, a newspaper reports.

Indiana State Excise Police cited Clausen and a 23-year-old on June 23 outside a liquor store near the Notre Dame campus, police said Friday.

Excise police were in an unmarked car outside the store to catch minors attempting to get alcohol, a police spokesman, told the South Bend Tribune.

Clausen, the nation's No. 1 recruit in the last recruiting cycle, was cited for a misdemeanor citation, while the 23-year-old, a recent Notre Dame graduate, was cited for inducing a minor to possess alcohol, an infraction.

Clausen declined comment Friday. Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis also declined comment.

Police said the 23-year-old entered the store and bought vodka, whiskey and beer.
Clausen remained outside the store in a Chevrolet Tahoe along with another Notre Dame freshman, who was not cited.

Clausen has entered a pretrial diversion program with the St. Joseph County prosecutor's office, said Linda Scopelitis, who directs the program. Under the terms of the agreement, signed on July 11, Clausen agreed to pay a $170 fee and to not commit a similar offense for a year.
