MADISON (WKOW) --  Former Badger football player Erasmus James will face a plea hearing on felony battery charges.

James was arrested last November after police say he punched a friend in the face at a bar, causing the man to need five stitches.

He didn't speak at his first court appearance, so a not guilty plea was entered for him at that time.
