The words of the police report are "It does not appear he knew his attackers and this is being investigated as an unprovoked assault."

Bret Bielema who is a member of the University of Wisconsin Athletic Communications offce said in a statement "My concern right now is for Montee's health and well being. Montee has been released from the hospital and is under care and supervision of our sports medicine staff. We will continue to evaluate him as we approach the start of fall camp this weekend.

It is unknown if the attack on Ball was based on his race or just a random act by a bunch of thugs who saw Ball as an easy target.
