Police arrest 3 in assault of Montee Ball


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Police have arrested three suspects in the assault on Wisconsin running back Montee Ball.

Ball sustained a concussion when he was attacked by several men near campus Aug. 1.

A police report says three 21-year-old Madison men were arrested Tuesday afternoon. They all face battery charges.

The report also says detectives are still investigating a fight at a house party July 27 involving students, players and other individuals. While Ball was present, it says, police found no evidence he was involved. One person received hospital treatment for an injury suffered during the fight, but nobody has been charged so far.

Ball, a Heisman Trophy finalist last season as a junior, has said he had nothing to do with the fight. He hopes to be ready for the season opener.
