Roethlisberger Accused of Sexual Assault

Recommended Posts

Surprised this wasn't already posted.

 

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's night of bar-hopping in a central Georgia college town ended with a new allegation against him after a 20-year-old college student told police he sexually assaulted her in a nightclub.

 

The two-time Super Bowl winner already faces a lawsuit from a woman who claims he raped her in 2008 at a Lake Tahoe hotel and casino, an allegation he strongly denies. Roethlisberger has not been charged in either case.

 

The latest accusation came early Friday in downtown Milledgeville, about 85 miles southeast of Atlanta and about 30 miles south of the lake home the player owns.

I'd love to know what Roethlisberger does to piss these women off so much. Obviously he's hittin' and running, but there has to be something else that sets them off which causes them to seek revenge.

 

Stick to sheep, Ben!

I follow the michael Jackson theory here. If one person accuses you of rape one time, its probably not true. If multiple people accuse you of rape multiple times. You're probably a rapist. Can You imagine if by the grace of god Big ben was not a steelers next year. We could wrap up the division by week 8. Keep up the good work Ben

Possible, but I think it's a little different when children say it compared to an adult.

 

The victim told police her "attacker" weighed 241 lbs. That's exactly right according to his NFL bio, which leads me to believe she knew who he was and she had looked up his info. Suspicious.

 

As much as I hate Ben and the Steelers, I just have a hard time believing Ben is that stupid. I think she knew who he was, knew what she was doing. I think Ben really pissed her off after all the fun was over and she didn't take kindly to that. So what better revenge than to drag his name through the mud again?

 

Just an opinion though. Well see how this plays out.

I know, max. It's killing me that I'm thinking this way. lol

 

I wouldn't mind one bit if he missed next season, and the one after that, though. :)

 

 

why would he even be talking a 20 year old girl?

 

Why not? Young. Impressionable. Probably not looking for anything serious. He should bang as many 20 year olds as humanly possible (with consent of course). :D

ATLANTA (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has hired a high-profile Atlanta defense attorney as police investigate a Georgia woman's claim he sexually assaulted her.

 

Roethlisberger has not been charged. Police say a 20-year-old college student reported the assault after an encounter with Roethlisberger at a nightclub in central Georgia.

 

Police in Milledgeville plan a news conference Monday afternoon on the case.

 

Meanwhile, the assistant for attorney Ed Garland confirms that he is representing Roethlisberger. Garland previously represented rapper T.I. on a federal weapons charge and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in a murder case. More serious charges against Lewis were dropped and he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor obstruction of justice charge.

I see the logic there but a possible false accuser could as well.

 

As for the bars he goes to and the company he keeps, I have heard from Pittsburgh fans that Ben hangs out at college bars early and often. So it would seem he would prefer ease and quantity over quality. And there is nothing wrong with that, though perhaps because I am a bit older a successful 27 year old trolling for college chicks seems a little odd to me.

What I have heard that doesn't fair well for Ben is this....The girl went STRAIGHT to the police and hospital. After one week since the incident, the girl has dropped out of college and moved back with her parents. That doesn't sound like someone just screwing around with an athlete. And watch enough Lifetime movies you recognize her actions are that of assaulted women.
