Ben’s Illegal Procedure (by J. Tinsley)

Posted by T. Adeyemi on March 6, 2010

Look, there’s always been a saying that people won’t say the same thing about you twice and it not be some validity behind it. In the case of Pittsburgh Steelers signal caller, Ben Roethlisberger, it’s him and his propensity for lady friends to say some not so nice things about the two time Super Bowl champ. Here’s the gist of what happened:

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is being investigated in an allegation of sexual assault at a Georgia nightclub, the police said Friday. Officers said the suspected assault occurred early Friday at a nightclub in Milledgeville, Ga., about 85 miles southeast of Atlanta. Roethlisberger owns a home nearby. Roethlisberger and 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,” said Deputy Chief Richard Malone, who added that Roethlisberger and the suspected victim had been interviewed and the woman was taken to a hospital, where she was treated and released.

So now Big Ben has two cases to deal with. He’s still enduring a civil lawsuit stemming from 2008’s allegation from a woman who claims the QB raped her at a Lake Tahoe Hotel. I’m not commenting on either case because for one, I don’t know all the facts. I do know Kobe’s situation was handled totally different. I’m just saying. And two, both will probably get settled out of court anyway. I’m no lawyer, so my legal advice won’t hold much weight. But damn, someone tell Ben to sit his ass down. This makes it three offseasons where he’s encountered trouble. First was the motorcycle crash which thankfully spared him his life. Then the aforementioned rape accusation. Now this.

Who knows, maybe these women are simply looking to cash in on an easy payday. It’s not that far-fetched. Then again, maybe Ben can’t hold his alcohol and mistakenly takes “no” for “yes.” Or perhaps it’s a combination of both.
