Former Broncos RB Montee Ball arrested for battery
Thursday March 17th, 2016

Former Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball will face a new set of domestic abuse charges after a former girlfriend accused him of choking her during an argument in 2014, reports the Wisconsin State Journal.

Ball is currently facing misdemeanor domestic abuse charges after a February arrest for allegedly throwing his girlfriend across their hotel room. Ball has been charged with two felonies and two misdemeanors for the alleged incident from 2014.

A Madison, Wisc., police spokesman said Thursday the second woman contacted police after seeing reports of Ball’s arrest last month, according to the State Journal

Ball was a second-round selection of the Broncos in 2013. He played in five games with Denver in 2014, but was released by the team before the 2015 season. In December, the New England Patriots signed Ball to their practice squad before releasing him on Feb. 9.

Ball pleaded not guilty to the February charges and his trial is scheduled for May. He will appear in court for the new charges Monday.
