MADISON, Wis. — The Madison Police Department released the incident report regarding former University of Wisconsin runnig back Montee Ball, charged with substantial battery on Feb. 5, 2016.
The report indicates Ball was on State St. the night of Feb. 4 with some friends and intended to spend the night with the friends and some females unknown to Ball’s girlfriend, Layci Petrakis. Petrakis did not approve of Ball’s plans for the night, so she intended to pick him up and drive him to the Hampton Inn and Suites where she was staying for the night. Ball refused and she left back to the hotel.
Hours later, Ball reportedly came back to Petrakis’ hotel intoxicated and said something to the effect of “I understand why your old boyfriend put his hands on you. I’m having a hard time not putting my hands on you now.”
That’s when the incident became physical and Ball reportedly threw Petrakis across the hotel room, injuring her right shin on a wooden table. He was charged with substantial assault due to her injuries.
