Months after the investigation into an alleged rape by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in a Milledgeville, Georgia nightlcub the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has released the police interview with the 20-year-old alleged victim as well as other evidence, including photos and videos of Roethlisberger taken that night.
During the interview, conducted the day after the alleged incident, the 20-year-old blond Georgia College and State University student described what she remembered from the attack.
Roethlisberger, the accuser and some of her friends were partying at the Capitol City Club when one of his bodyguards took her to an empty room.
“He, like, had me sit at this stool. Then three seconds later, Ben comes back there, [his] penis was already out of his pants, and I was like no, this is not right. I don’t agree with this.
“I got up and I, like, went to the first door that I saw, which happened to be, like, a bathroom. And he, like, followed me in and shut the door.
“That’s when he proceeded to have sex with me, and the whole time I said, ‘No we really don’t need to do this, this isn’t OK, we shouldn’t be doing this.’ Then he just got up and left, and I walked out, and that’s when my friends, like, ran up to me, and we left and we went to the nearest cop car that we saw.”

Another video featuring Roethlisberger interacting with a separate woman at the club was also released:
The accuser would eventually drop the charges and the case against Roethlisberger was dismissed. The NFL suspended the two-time Super Bowl winning QB for up to six weeks. This is the second time Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault after Harrah’s Casino employee Andrea McNulty came out in July of 2009 and said Roethlisberger assaulted her in 2008.
