Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault — again. According to the gossip blog TMZ.com, “Big Ben” and pals were out on the town drinking in Milledgeville, Georgia, on Friday night when a 20-year-old woman alleged Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her in the bathroom of the club, Capital City. A source at the Milledgeville Police Department says she was allegedly “hysterical” when she arrived with three friends to file a report. She was allegedly treated at a local hospital and released.
However, Roethlisberger hasn’t yet been charged with a crime and his agent, Ryan Tollner, told ProFootballTalk.com that they are “skeptical of motive.” Roethlisberger’s camp had a similar response last summer when the QB was accused of sexual assault by a VIP hostess, Andrea McNulty, at a hotel-casino in Lake Tahoe on July 11, 2008.
We take umbrage with the way TMZ has reported Roethlisberger’s latest legal troubles, especially their claim that “Ben’s accuser did not look like a girl who was making it up.”
