Former Fitch football standout sentenced for late night brawl with police

Posted: Updated:

Former Austintown Fitch sports standout William Mahone will serve eight more days in jail for charges filed following a confrontation with police in the township.

Mahone received the sentence after being convicted of assault, aggravated menacing, vandalism, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct in Mahoning County Court on Wednesday.  The former University of Notre Dame wide receiver already spent two days in jail when he was arrested.

Mahone was arrested after police say he shouted shouted racial slurs and obscenities at officers when they responded to a call on Rita Avenue last month.

Police initially received reports of a fight going on at the address. When they arrived, they say that Mahone was head butting and punching vehicles, as well as attempting to fight several individuals. The report says that Mahone was highly intoxicated.

Police say that after having difficulty handcuffing Mahone, he continued fighting them, and was stunned two times by officers. One officer says Mahone butted him in the head.

Mahone must also pay $250 plus court costs, and spend 12 months in probation. The court advises that he will be returning to Glenbeigh Center for treatment of alcoholism.

The 2012 Austintown graduate played both football and basketball for Fitch.

Mahone didn't see any action as a freshman in the 2012 Notre Dame season, but played in the Purdue and Michigan State games in 2012 as a sophomore. He is no longer enrolled at the university.
