Former Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball is in more legal trouble after being charged in a second domestic abuse case.

Dane County prosecutors charged Ball on Thursday with strangulation and suffocation and substantial battery, both felonies, as well as disorderly conduct, The Wisconsin State Journal reported.

One of Ball’s former girlfriends, who claims she was in a relationship with him for a year, alleges he hit her with his phone during a June 2014 argument in a Madison hotel, according to a complaint.

She claimed the 25 year old grabbed her by the throat and threw her out of the room.

The woman added Ball grabbed her neck and pushed her down a week earlier.

After returning to Madison following a week-long trip to Paris, the woman said the two argued about whether to go out or stay in that evening before Ball went out to a bar, according to the complaint.

She said she found him at the bar later where they again argued before he left.

She later found him at another bar which he also left and she then followed him to his room at a Double Tree hotel, according to the complaint.

Once back at his hotel she said they got into a loud argument in the lobby before they went their separate ways to cool off, at the suggestion of other hotel guests who witnessed the argument.

When he later returned to the room, the woman told authorities he was drunk and that they began arguing again, the complaint said.

She said Ball threw his phone which hit her under her left eye after she became upset about a text he received from another woman.

She claimed had responded to the woman’s text, telling her, ‘You should come over.’

The woman said as the argument continued he picked up the phone again, throwing it a second time but missed.

She said Ball then grabbed her by the throat, lifting her off the ground, and pushed her against the wall, according to the complaint.

She claimed she blacked out for a few seconds before he released his grip on her throat, before he allegedly picked her up and threw her out of the room into the hallway.

The woman said the door to the room opened with Ball throwing out her shoes and purse, the complaint said.

The woman told police the phone bruised her face and that her neck was swollen and sore, the complaint said.

A couple of days following the incident, she said she told Ball that she was going to end their relationship if he did not seek help for his abusive behavior.

She told police he responded, saying he would not seek treatment for anything.

After she ended their relationship, she alleged he damaged several things in her apartment including television and several photos.

Police said the woman also told them there was another incident previously that June in which she claimed he grabbed her by the neck and pushed her onto a bed.

She said she and Ball had gotten into an argument after she told him she wanted to go out to dinner with him but he wanted to go out with friends, according to the complaint.

The woman also reportedly described Ball as a ‘shover’, claiming when he was drunk and angry with her, he would shove her away.

Authorities said the woman went to police after seeing media reports of his arrest last month in connection to a case involving another woman in which he faces two misdemeanor counts.

Ball, a former Wisconsin player, was arrested and charged in February in an incident involving a woman who he most recently dated.

That woman alleged that Ball threw her into a table. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges.

He had been charged with disorderly conduct after his then girlfriend, 20, reported to police in Madison, Wisconsin that he came to the room they were staying in at a Motel 6 on February 5 just before 4am and threw her into a table.

Upon speaking further with the woman, police also learned that just days before Ball had allegedly backhanded the woman while they were driving to his parents’ house when she tried to speak with him about his spending habits.

Ball will not face felony charges for either incident.

The victim, who said she was previously abused by an ex-boyfriend, told police the two argued after Ball spent the night out with friends and some females.

Ball later said in the police report that his girlfriend was upset because he had cheated on her.

He was picked up two blocks away from the Hampton Inn when police arrived on the scene walking in just shorts and a shirt despite the below-freezing weather, and was cooperative while speaking with authorities.

He admitted ‘things had gotten physical’ and he pushed his girlfriend away when they were arguing, after which he decided to leave and walk to the nearby DoubleTree to spend the night.

Ball also said that his girlfriend had not hit him or attacked him at any point during the incident.

His girlfriend meanwhile was taken out of the room on a stretcher and had a cut on her right leg and bump on her head that she claimed left her dizzy. The cut required stitches.

The girlfriend later said the two began dating in September 2015 and that there had never been any physical altercations between the two before that week.

She said that Ball was going through ‘personal issues.’

The Broncos had cut Ball earlier in the season and were heading to the Super Bowl at the time, which they eventually won.

A few days after the incident on February 9 he was dropped from the New England Patriots practice squad.

Ball was selected by the Broncos in the second round of the 2013 draft.
