Big Ben accused of sexual assault, again

TMZ.com is reporting that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Georgia.

The alleged incident occurred early this morning at Capital City — a club in Milledgeville, Georgia.

According to law enforcement sources, the alleged victim — who has already been interviewed by police — was treated at a local hospital and released.

We’re told in addition to the alleged victim, witnesses are being interviewed — and one law enforcement source says they will attempt to interview Roethlisberger.

UPDATE: We’re told Ben Roethlisberger has already been interviewed by police. We’re also told no formal charges have been filed at this point.

UPDATE 3:30 PM EST: A rep from the Steelers tells TMZ, “We are gathering information on this incident – until then we have no further comment.”

As with all accusations, let’s wait until more details emerge before drawing any conclusions. There are many sides to stories and this incident could turn out to be nothing, or it could turn out to be something. Either way, let’s let the legal system play out first.
