The judge accepted Ball's plea. Ball will have to pay a $177 fine.

 MADISON (WKOW) -- Badgers running back Montee Ball has a court hearing scheduled for Monday regarding a citation he got during the Mifflin Street Block Party.

Ball is challenging the trespassing ticket. Police say he went to a home on Mifflin Street and tried to push his way in to use the bathroom.

On Friday, an attorney for Ball told 27 News there's a proposed plea agreement that may resolve the issue. Attorney Dean Strang says Ball will plead no contest to a reduced charge of unreasonable noise.

Strang says if a judge accepts the agreement, Ball would have to pay $177.
