Things are not looking good for Pittsburgh Steelers star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, at least when it comes to public perception.
More reports continue to put Ben Roethlisberger not in a good picture but lets remember that a lot of these eyewitness accounts are coming from people who will not go on the record.
Just a week after a report from KDKA.com indicated that Roethlisberger told authorities that the 20-year-old college student hit her head and had to go to the hospital, a latest report has an eyewitness account that Ben Roethlisberger’s bodyguards guarded the entrance to the bathroom where he allegedly sexually assaulted a 20-year-old college student.
This according to an eyewitness account at FanHouse, via the Huffington Post.
Another witness tells the web site that the Steelers quarterback looked “as surprised as anybody” when police arrived at the Milledgeville, Ga. bar later in the night.
A woman who claims to have partied with Roethlisberger the night of the alleged assault says the Steeler “was not nice.” She tells WTAE Pittsburgh that he “bought a round of shots for girls and said, ‘All you bitches, take my shots.'” The article reports that Roethlisberger “hit on her but she wasn’t interested and didn’t like the way he was acting, so she left.”
The two-time Super Bowl champion, who last year was accused of rape in Nevada, reportedly admitted to having “sexual contact” with his most recent accuser in Georgia, but denies that an assault took place. While he initially refused to provide a DNA sample, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that he is arranging to submit one.
