Police are saying this is unprovoked.
I am not buying it, Heisman Trophy candidates aren’t just jump by 5 guys on their own campus for no reason. The reason may not have been about Ball specifically but there was some sort of motive.
Wisconsin senior running back Montee Ball was the victim of what police are calling an “unprovoked assault” early Wednesday in Madison, Wis.
Ball suffered head injuries after being attacked by five men near Wisconsin’s campus around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday. Witnesses told police the men knocked Ball to the ground and began kicking him. Ball, a 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist, was taken to a hospital and released later Wednesday morning.
“My concern right now is for Montee’s health and well-being,” Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said in a prepared statement. “Montee has been released from the hospital and is under the care and supervision of our sports medicine staff. We will continue to evaluate him as we approach the start of fall camp this weekend. I do expect Montee to make a full recovery.”
There is a missing piece to this story that I am sure will come out soon.
Hopefully, Ball makes a full recovery.
