A 20-year-old quarterback for the Wisconsin Badgers football team who was attacked downtown last month had a fake ID and was inside a bar shortly before he was attacked, according to a new released report from the Madison police report.
Tanner McEvoy was assaulted near the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and East Dayton Street early on the morning of Sunday, July 21.
McEvoy told police three people assaulted him and stole his wallet, his iPhone 5 and a watch. He admitted to police that inside the wallet, he had a fake South Carolina ID with the name Mike Sawyer on it.
He told police he had been with friends at the Kollege Klub before he was assaulted.
McEvoy was under the age of 21 at the time of the assault. If he had been drinking, McEvoy could face sanctions for violating the UW Athletic Code.
