Another Wisconsin football player has been a target of a crime.
Last summer, former Badgers running back – and Denver Broncos 2013 second round draft pick – Montee Ball was attacked by five individuals. Less than a week ago, a fourth individual was arrested in the unprovoking attack on Ball, with one individual involved in the crime still free.
The same police department investigated the Ball incident that is now investigating the McEvoy crime. Ball’s attack was called an “unprovoked assault,” while McEvoy’s attack is being called a “strong armed robbery.”
Ball reportedly suffered a concussion and facial injuries in the attack. In the McEvoy incident that happened at 1:44 am on Sunday morning on Wisconsin Ave., he reportedly suffered minor injuries, besides having his wallet, watch, and iPhone stolen by the perpetrators.
According to the police report, McEvoy was hit in the head and suffered two cuts to the head after the mugging. Also, the report said that the two males and two females, who attacked the Badgers football player, fled towards Capitol Square.
While Ball took time to return when he was attacked last summer, McEvoy returned a day later, as he was back at practice today.
“First and foremost we are happy that Tanner is physically OK after this attack,” UW football coach Gary Andersen said. “It’s terrible to get a call about something like this but we are grateful the injuries were not serious.”
McEvoy is an incoming sophomore quarterback for the Badgers, who is expected to compete for the starting job. He committed to play for the Badgers in February and is one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country, according to college football analysts.
