Wisconsin TV reporter Theo Keith later tweeted that "Madison Police Chief Noble Wray confirms that Montee Ball was arrested for trespassing on a #Mifflin2012 porch."

Yes, the Big Ten Offensive Player Of The Year was arrested for trespassing when he refused to leave someone's porch. But why would someone in Madison want Ball off their porch? Beer muscles? An angry boyfriend? Or is something more insidious going on in middle America? My money's on beer muscles, but you never know.



I know it's a stupid, minor offense. But it's ten times easier to LEAVE the porch and not get arrested than it is to get arrested. moron.

Yes, Mifflin is a huge block party in Madison. 20,000+ people drinking and partying in the street, with 100s of tickets issued every year.

A block party dedicated to binge drinking.

Mifflin is a huge event in Madison two weekends before finals. There are parties everywhere all day long and the street is packed with 20,000 drunk college kids. It really is a great time. The police used to be very lax about everything. Last year the city even allowed you to have open alcohol in the street with no threat of a ticket. That led to more problems than in the past and this year they went the other direction and really cracked down. They were being stricter about alcohol on the street and made a specific note that only "invited guests" could drink on someone's property, non-invited guests could be arrested for trespassing. There's a good chance it was that kind of incident. I know of two friends who got arrested this year, and expect to hear of a couple more later tonight when they return and share it with the world as a facebook status. Really not a big deal at all. 90% of the team was probably there, he's just the one that got caught.
