MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Madison police say Wisconsin running back Montee Ball has been ticketed for trespassing during the annual Mifflin Street block party.

Police spokesman Joel DeSpain says Ball was on the porch of a Mifflin St. home Saturday and a resident didn't want him there.

A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report (http://bit.ly/KzrTDQ ) says several Mifflin St. residents have posted no-trespassing signs this year, allowing police to issue tickets if unwanted people are on the property.

DeSpain says Ball was cooperative, and alcohol wasn't an issue. He was given a $429 ticket.

A message left with a school spokesman Saturday wasn't immediately returned.

The block party is an annual tradition dating back about 40 years. Police have stepped up enforcement after recent parties involved violence and excessive public drunkenness.
