MADISON, Wis. (AP) Former Wisconsin and Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball has been arrested on a felony battery charge after an apparent dispute with his girlfriend.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain says officers were called to a downtown hotel around 3:45 a.m. Friday. A woman told police she and Ball were arguing when he threw her in the air. She said she landed on a table and cut her leg, requiring stitches.

DeSpain says Ball told police he pushed the woman and she fell. DeSpain says Ball cooperated with officers.

Jail records show Ball remained in custody Friday afternoon.
