Montee Ball facing charges in second domestic violence case


Former Broncos second-round pick Montee Ball was arrested in February and charged earlier this year with disorderly conduct and misdemeanor battery of his girlfriend.

Ball pleaded not guilty to those charges and the case is set to go to trial in May. Ball will have some other legal issues to deal with in the interim.

Ball faces felony charges of┬ástrangulation and suffocation and substantial battery and two misdemeanor counts of domestic disorderly conduct from an incident involving a different woman in 2014. Madison, Wisconsin┬ápolice spokesman Joel DeSpain said, via the Wisconsin State Journal, that the accuser came forward after Ball’s arrest.

According to the criminal complaint, the couple got into an argument after Ball received a text from another woman. He allegedly threw the phone at his ex-girlfriend, hitting her under her left eye, and then put “one or both of his hands on her throat and lifted her off her feet” after the argument continued.

Ball’s attorney denied the charges and said his accuser “may have her own motivations” for raising the accusations “two years after the fact.” Ball, who was released by the Patriots in February after spending time on their practice squad late last season, is due in court on the new charges Monday.

    I knew he wasn’t that good of a ball player but I had no idea he was this big of a loser off the field.

    Remember when Ball was at Wisconsin and five guys jumped him “for no reason” and beat him to a pulp? Maybe that was some type of street justice. Evidently the dude likes to beat up kids and women.

    Nuthin sadder than an Ex that don’t get no settlement from that NFLer she dated.

    Those closest to him have said for a while that he needed to stop drinking, stop partying and get in shape. He never did.

    Good Riddance… so glad I never bought this losers jersey.

    How bad are you that you get beat out by Ronnie Hillman? What a waste.

    If he was in Dallas there would be twice as many articles and replies. That’s just the way it is when you’re America’s Team.

  12. fordmandalay says: Mar 18, 2016 6:04 PM

    Sounds like he’s ready to be a Raven! They’re looking for a new RB/felon.

    How in the world would you prosecute a case like that two years after the fact?

  15. jag1959 says: Mar 18, 2016 6:32 PM

    Done like yesterday’s dinner

    Can we queue a cage match w the UW wrestler that rolled him badly a few years ago.

    His defense will be she disrespected him so what he did was merely in self defense.

  18. chebornek says: Mar 18, 2016 6:59 PM

    Who was the brainiac who thought so highly of Ball to waste a 2nd round pick on him (apparently without doing much due diligence on Monte’s character).

    Why it was the Executive of The Year, wonderkind maestro, The Natural One.

    Today’s winner of the dumb football player of the day goes to Montee Ball.

    Dang if Goodell can suspend Brady four games for understanding basic science what will he do to Ball…..amputate a hand?

    Typical Bronco

  23. elrock7 says: Mar 18, 2016 7:46 PM

    and you are just a typical jealous moron!

  24. senatorblutarsky says: Mar 18, 2016 8:43 PM

    Sounds like this tough guy likes to beat up on women. Typical Bronco. They’re either beating up their women or making them take the blame for their illegal HGH use.

  25. conflictedobserver says: Mar 18, 2016 9:06 PM

    soon to have no job, probably no money after lawyers get thru with him and an out of court settlement with one of these fine womenz.
    coming to a car wash or movie theater near you sooner than he signs with an NFL team.
    running backs are easier to find than women like these.
    he’s done

  26. bradygirl12 says: Mar 18, 2016 10:15 PM

    Instead of using women as punching bags,he should be working out and trying to make an NFL roster. Looks like that may be gone out the window. Idiot.

  27. milkcan44 says: Mar 18, 2016 11:27 PM

    He has ability but needs to realize he’s starting at the bottom and has to be willing to make a long climb back.

  28. alliwantisluv says: Mar 18, 2016 11:53 PM

    Why can’t these players behave off he field? There should be zero tolerance for such behavior. One incident – suspension for at least a year.

    Girl wants a payday..
    nothing to see here.

  30. skolvikes says: Mar 19, 2016 1:38 AM

    Just another Wisconsin football criminal. /sigh

    When will it end?

  31. dnvrfan11 says: Mar 19, 2016 8:25 AM

    being a broncos fan he isnt wrong. Bronco players do have the most domestic violence cases since 2000. Although the Broncos are not among the top teams in the league for PED violations.
