Arrests made in Montee Ball assault

Three 21 year old Madison men have been arrested for the attack earlier this month on Badger running back Montee Ball.

Wendell Venerable, Deonte Wilson and Robert Wilks all face substantial battery charges. On August 1st, Ball was beaten up and suffered a concussion when he was jumped near campus, just after 2 in the morning. Investigators have said the attack may have been retaliation for another fight at a house party the week prior.

Ball, a Heisman trophy finalist last year, has claimed to have had nothing to do with the fight. Police found no evidence he was involved. Ball said he hopes to be ready for the season opener on Saturday.
