The police are treating the incident as an "unprovoked assault," according to the incident report. Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said the Heisman Trophy finalist has been released from the hospital.

"My concern right now is for Montee's health and well-being," Bielema said in a 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."
Ball ran for 1,923 yards and scored a total of 39 touchdowns last season as the Badgers won the Big Ten title.
