MADISON, Wis. — Former Wisconsin and Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball won’t face felony charges after an apparent argument with his girlfriend.
Prosecutors charged Ball on Monday with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, for an incident at a downtown Madison hotel early Friday. The woman told police she and Ball were arguing when he threw her in the air and she landed on a table, cutting her leg.
A criminal complaint says Ball also was charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly striking the woman on the face five days earlier.
