Police report says Ball threw girlfriend through table

The police report from the incident involving former Broncos and Patriots running back Montee Ball and his girlfriend in Madison, Wisconsin says Ball hurled the woman through a hotel table during an argument.

Ball was arrested on Super Bowl weekend on a “tentative charge” of substantial battery. According to the report, the woman said Ball had arrived at the hotel intoxicated and she was “fearful for what might happen.”

Ball finished the 2015 season on the Patriots practice squad and was waived a few days after the incident. A second-round pick of the Broncos in 2013, Ball was cut by the Broncos before the 2015 season.

His NFL career may already have been over, but if these allegations are true it’s hard to imagine Ball getting signed.

  1. Why we got to showhim in a Broncos Jersey here? He was a Patriot at the time of this incident. Must be something he learned out there cause Denver never had any issues with him.

  2. Why are some fans on this here site always so self conscious when they show a player in their teams uniform. In this case he was on the Pats practice squad, i doubt if you can get any stock photos. Dont take it personal, every team has some warts.

  3. Super Bowl Sunday and or weekend, has the highest incidences of domestic violent than any other time during the year.

    Alcohol is involved in 95% of the incidents.

    Ball is done. Can you image if this would have been caught on camera?

    He has always had some arrogance about him even in college…he got jumped by a couple guys and it was “Unprovoked” and while unfortunately thse things do happen I often wonder how much truth there is to it.

    I remember intially it was she was pushed and fell through which SHOULD NEVER happen to begin with… and even though he is a jerk it could be something like she got up in his face….. and he tried to get her out of it and pushed her away….. I am NOT trying to defend him… just trying to point out that maybe those weren’t his intentions for that to happen.

    Now they say he threw her through a table I imagine something like those wild west movies in the saloon brawls or some WWF crap…. if this is indeed how it DID in fact go down he needs to be suspended or 8 games as soon as that case is closed…. but it won’t matter much because this guy’s NFL career is all ready over.

  5. Look, I hate the Patriots as much as the next guy, but the SECOND this came to light, he was released.

    Yes….they cut him as soon as they found out. Same with Hernandez. When are the Bills planning to cut McCoy?

    Yes, he is done, but the first half of your statement is flat out wrong. That meme, which is touted out every year, is just flat out wrong. There is no measured increase of domestic violence on Super Bowl Sunday vs. any other day.

    And to say ‘95% of the incidents involve alcohol’ is ridiculous. There is simply no way to prove that, let alone assign percentages.

    Repeating something over and over again doesn’t make it true. If it did, it would mean I’ve been dating Minka Kelly for the last 3 years.

    ==============================================

    Not true with Hernandez. They waited until the arrest warrant was made, not when he was considered a very strong suspect for being a serial killer. Urban Meyer would tried to “pray” the problem away and suspended him for the first quarter against a Division II (FCS) team.

    Mr. Ball, Jerry Jones is on line 2…

  10. I don’t know if this kid can help a team. Two teams thought it was worth a shot, and it looks like his second chance got cut short for non-football reasons.

    I guess somebody should pick him up and see if he’s better than someone they already have. That far down on the roster a team can handle a suspension.

  11. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THESE PLAYERS?!?
    Seriously, is it too many shots to the head? Growing up being pampered from their start in the pee wees? Lack of pater familia?

    I grew up a child of the 60s and at first I thought the movie “North Dallas 40” was pure fiction. But then as I got older and thought of that movie I believed that with progress, that nonsense would be over.

    This is progress???

    ……….

    He never suited up for the Pats, only practiced. And obviously Denver had issues with him, they let him go.

  14. The guy was more of a product of a very good WI O-line rather than laden with awesome talent. Also, the police report indicated that the girlfriend was still sporting a lip injury from a prior incident with the guy.

    What in the heck is “tentative charge”?

    Since he was a college hero in Madison they were probably hoping it would all blow over and they could sweep it under the rug. Now that the cat is out of the bag they are going to have to charge him. It’s no different than what goes on in Gainesville and Tallahasse.

  16. Typical NE player. Winning erases the fact that they have, and consistently still empty some of the worst human beings on the planet.
    ****

  17. I bet Ball was pissed the Broncos got to and won the Super Bowl. Needed to release some frustration WWE style on his girlfriend. Probably a choke slam through the table. I wonder if he got up on the turnbuckle and celebrated afterwards.
