Montee Ball

Cops Interview Alleged

Victim in House Party Fight

8/3/2012 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

8/4/12 12:20 PM PT -- The Madison Police Department released a statement today saying they are indeed investigating the fight that took place on June 27 and they have determined that Ball was present, but are not certain if was involved in the actual fight. The statement also says, "The detectives have developed several persons of interests on the attack of Montee Ball, and are following up on subsequent leads."

Police in Madison, Wisconsin have interviewed a man who claims he was beat up by UW running back Montee Ball at a party last week ... and want to know if the alleged victim had anything to do with the attack on Ball on Wednesday morning.

Sources connected to the investigation tell us ... detectives visited the alleged victim at his job earlier today and questioned him to find out if Wednesday's campus attack on Ball was an act of retaliation.

Our sources tell us the alleged victim told police ... Ball, along with other members of the University of Wisconsin football team, beat him badly at a party at an apartment complex near campus on Friday July 27th.

We're told ... the alleged victim said he suffered multiple injuries in the attack ... including facial lacerations, bruising and a concussion.  The alleged victim told investigators he was hospitalized for his injuries ... but never filed a police report.

According to our sources, the man adamantly denied having anything to do with Wednesday's attack on Ball.

We called the Madison PD to ask why they had previously informed the media that they were NOT investigating the July 27th incident ... but they refused to comment.

Montee had previously tweeted that he was not involved in any fight prior to the campus attack.

Will somebody give Ball a calculator and explain a partied out battered body will NOT get an $$$ NFL contract! His body and azz could potentially earn him millions. He better keep both in the right place at the right time hanging out with the right folks!

Well, if the guy was hospitalized with those injuries there should be plenty of paperwork to back it up. Also, does he have any facial lacerations or bruising now? The 27th was only a week ago. They wouldn't all be healed already.

I think Ball should be concentrating on his career and not who he can beat up because he can and will be protected by the school. The school should take some action and suspend him along with a hefty fine. And where are his parents in all this? Is the type of boy they raised?????
