Former Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball is headed to jail. The 25-year-old pleaded guilty to two charges of disorderly conduct and one charge of battery for his role in two separate domestic abuse incidents.

Ball received 60 days in jail and 18 months of probation. Ball is undergoing alcohol abuse counseling, and he must not contact the female victims.

In February, Ball’s girlfriend told police that he threw her across a Madison, Wisconsin, hotel room. A previous girlfriend told police about a month later that Ball assaulted her in 2014.

The Broncos selected Ball in the second round of the NFL Draft in 2013. He only lasted two seasons with the team. He was a two-time All-American at the University of Wisconsin.
