A local court will wait a week longer than scheduled to file charges against three University of Wisconsin-Madison students who were arrested for allegedly attacking Badgers’ senior running back Montee Ball in August.
Rather than starting this past Monday, the Dane County Circuit will wait one week to formally charge UW-Madison junior Robert Wilks and seniors Wendell Venerable and Deonte Wilson.
Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne told the Wisconsin State Journal he had not received police reports from the incident.
Madison police arrested Wilks, Venerable and Wilson on tentative charges of substantial battery connected to the crime on Aug. 28, according to Madison Police Department spokesperson Joel DeSpain.
DeSpain said the three 21-year-old students attacked Ball on the 500 block of University Avenue around 2 a.m. on Aug. 1, in what police have called an “unprovoked assault.”
The three students will appear in court on Sept. 17.
