Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers quarterback, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a Georgia nightclub yesterday. Here is a bit about this from ESPN:
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is being investigated in an allegation of sexual assault at a Georgia nightclub, police said Friday.
Officers said the alleged assault occurred early Friday morning in Milledgeville, about 85 miles southeast of Atlanta. The player owns a home nearby.
The two-time Super Bowl champion and some of his friends were seen visiting local restaurants and bars Thursday night.
"He's been identified as being at the scene and there are allegations naming him as the perpetrator," Deputy Chief Richard Malone said.
Malone said Roethlisberger had been with three other people who were mingling with another group that included the alleged victim. Malone said the woman and her party contacted a nearby police officer following the alleged assault.
Several areas of the bar were considered a crime scene, but Malone would not elaborate.
