Former Broncos running back Montee Ball avoids felony charges after alleged attack on girlfriend

A former running back for the Denver Broncos was arrested after allegedly throwing his girlfriend across a hotel room.

Montee Ball, who is currently a free agent, has been charged with disorderly conduct after his 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 further speaking with the woman, police also learned that just days before Ball, 25, 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.
