Montee Ball, the University of Wisconsin running back, was among hundreds of people cited Saturday during the Mifflin Street Block Party.
Ball, a Heisman Trophy finalist, was ticketed Saturday afternoon for trespassing after he declined to leave a porch when asked, Madison Police spokesman Joel DeSpain said. DeSpain said Ball, a UW-Madison senior, was “very respectful” and cooperative during the incident in which he was cited and released.
As of 5 p.m., 282 party-goers had been ticketed, mostly for trespassing, carrying open intoxicants and underage drinking, DeSpain said. That pace is far ahead of last year at the same time, when 118 people were cited, he said. DeSpain said no violent incidents had been reported as of 5 p.m.
