MADISON, Wis. - Former Badgers running back Montee Ball was sentenced to 60 days in jail in court Friday in a domestic abuse case.
Ball, 25, pleaded guilty in Dane County court to disorderly conduct and battery and was ordered to serve two consecutive 30-day jail sentences plus 18 months of probation.
In February, Ball was accused of hitting his girlfriend at a Madison hotel. In a separate incident in March, a different woman claimed Ball threw a phone at her and grabbed her by the neck.
Ball will get work-release privileges during his jail sentence.
Ball got four days credit for time served in jail.
Ball holds touchdown records at Wisconsin. He was drafted by Denver in 2013 and cut after two seasons.
