Get the shocking details on the flip about the former Wisconsin star running back Montee Ball…
This is NOT looking good for Ball!
Montee Ball was already facing misdemeanor domestic abuse charges from an incident involving a more recent girlfriend in February.
Sporting News reports:
A Madison police spokesman said Thursday the second woman notified police after seeing media reports of Ball’s arrest on Feb. 5.
The complaint alleges that Ball and his accuser had an argument in June 2014 about whether they should go out, according to police. The accuser followed Ball to several bars, eventually ending up at his hotel. An argument ensued over a text message from another woman, when Ball threw his phone and grabbed her by her neck before throwing her out of the hotel room into the hallway.
The complaint also alleges that, a few days later, Ball grabbed her by the neck during an argument over dinner, pushing her onto a bed. He then picked a lock to the bathroom door, throwing it open and striking her shoulder, police said.
Ball’s attorney, Erika Bierma, questioned the timing of the new accusations.
“This criminal complaint against Mr. Ball contains only allegations of a single individual who may have her own motivations for making such an accusation against a prominent athlete,” Bierma said in a statement. “They consist of selective allegations, two years after the fact, made by one side in this dispute.”
Ball was a second-round pick by the Broncos in the 2012 NFL Draft after leaving Wisconsin as one of its most decorated players. He earned the Doak Walker Award for best college running back his senior year, and finished his Badgers career with 5,140 rushing yards (5.6 average yard per carry) and 77 touchdowns, a Big Ten Conference record.
He was released by the Broncos before the 2015 season and was signed in December by the Patriots to the team’s practice squad. He was released Feb. 9.
