MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin running back Montee Ball, a finalist for this year's Heisman Trophy, was arrested for trespassing Saturday after refusing to leave the porch of an apartment.
Madison Police Department Lt. Trevor Knight confirmed to FOXSportsWisconsin.com that the arrest came during the Mifflin Street Block Party, an annual event held the first Saturday of each May in Madison. Knight said it was not an alcohol-related issue and that Ball was cooperative.
Ball was given a citation and will have to pay a 429 fine because the property owner did not want Ball on his porch, Knight said.
According to Knight, more than 200 people had been ticketed for trespassing Saturday. Several residents on Mifflin Street posted no trespassing signs, which allowed police to issue tickets to unwanted property guests.
Ball posted on his Twitter account late Saturday afternoon: "I guess an example needs to be set for mifflin...do what u gotta do. everyone knows how I am and how I carry...

Wisconsin star running back Montee Ball was arrested nearby the school campus for an extremely lame reason.
Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema likes to take a running back in every recruiting cycle, so who are the Badgers targeting to help fill the void of Montee Ball in 2013? Badger Nation looks at the position.
Last weekend in the NFL Draft, Wisconsin Badgers offensive linemen Peter Konz and Kevin Zeitler were taken in the first two rounds. Ricky Wagner should be a first round pick in 2013. In 2011, Gabe Carimi, John Mofitt, tight Lance Kendricks, and another guy who didn’t even start during his college football days in Madison were all drafted.
