MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin tailback Booker Stanley was suspended from the team Monday following his arrest at a weekend street party.

Stanley was charged with battery, disorderly conduct and resisting or obstructing an officer during the party Saturday near the campus, city police said. He was released on $950 bail, and a court appearance has not yet been scheduled. The university said Stanley could appeal the suspension.

The party drew about 20,000 people at its peak, and police said there were more than 200 arrests, most for underage drinking or possession of open containers of alcohol.

Stanley ran for 350 yards and two touchdowns and caught 18 passes for 146 yards and another score last season.
