MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Three University of Wisconsin-Madison students are charged in attack on Badgers' running back Montee Ball.

Wendell Venerable, Robert Wilks and Deonte Wilson appeared in Dane County Circuit Court Monday where a judge continued their signature bonds. A criminal complaint says Ball was kicked and punched Aug. 1 as he walked on University Ave. The complaint says a friend interrupted the attack when she threw herself over Ball on the ground.

Prosecutors say witnesses identified the three men, all 21, by looking at surveillance video from a nearby apartment building. WKOW-TV (http://tinyurl.com/8ue6bxx ) reports witnesses told investigators they heard the attackers say they planned to target ten football players in retaliation for a previous fight at a party when one of them was hurt.
