Ladder ball trash talking leads to arrest for disorderly conduct

June 4, 2012

A 34-year-old South Milwaukee man was arrested for disorderly conduct after a game of ladder ball got out of hand last week.

According to the police report:

The man was arrested after striking another person with a ladder ball (two golf balls connected by a rope) in the 1300 block of Marquette Avenue in South Milwaukee at 5:12 p.m. May 27.

The two had been playing ladder ball, and the man became upset that his opponent kept yelling "miss" each time he threw the ball.

He is accused of striking his opponent in the left hip, the face and forehead.
