Former Badger Montee Ball charged in another domestic abuse case

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Former Wisconsin Badger running back Montee Ball is again being charged with abusing a woman.

Madison police tell 27 News that media reports of Ball's arrest last month in Madison for abusing a woman with whom he was in a relationship prompted a former girlfriend to come forward and claim a drunken Ball abused her in 2014.

Police investigated and a criminal complaint filed Thursday contains multiple domestic abuse charges, including strangulation and suffocation, substantial battery and two counts of disorderly conduct.

The complaint details accusations made by a woman who claims she was in a relationship with Ball for a year. She says he abused her in an incident on June 28, 2014 in Madison.

This alleged victim claims the two argued about whether to go out or stay in that evening, before Ball went out. She says she joined him out later and they argued again, before she followed him back to his hotel.

There, they got into a loud argument in the lobby of the hotel and argued more in a hotel room before Ball threw his phone and hit her under her left eye. She claims he then put his right hand around her throat, lifting her off the ground as he applied pressure and pushed her against a wall. She told a detective Ball put pressure on her neck for around 10 seconds and that she thinks she blacked out for a few seconds, and that her neck was swollen and sore the following day.

She claims Ball then picked her up and threw her out of the room.

A day or two after the incident, she says she told Ball he needed to get help for his abusive behavior and that he responded by saying he would not seek treatment for anything.

She also says Ball damaged property at her apartment after she ended their relationship.

Police say the woman also claimed there was an incident earlier that same June in which Ball grabbed her by the back of the neck and pushed her onto a bed, holding her there.
