Roethlisberger Case -- Her Side of the Story

7/21/2009 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben RothlisbergerThe woman accusing Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault claims she warned the football star "You don't want to do this" -- but according to the lawsuit, Ben refused to let her go.

ProFootballTalk.com just released more details from Andrea McNulty's lawsuit against Big Ben -- in which she describes the alleged incident in great detail.

McNulty -- an employee at the Harrah's hotel in Lake Tahoe -- claims it all went down on Friday, July 11, 2008 around 10:00 p.m. In the docs, McNulty claims she ran into Roethlisberger in the hotel hallway and he told her that the sound system on his television wasn't working. He allegedly asked her to come and "take a quick look" at it.

McNulty claims she tried to call other hotel employees to fix the TV, but ultimately decided to go to the room to fix it herself. Once she got to the room, McNulty claims she determined there was no problem with the TV -- but as she tried to leave, Roethlisberger stood in her way and "grabbed [her] and started to kiss her."

According to the report, McNulty claims she was "shocked and stunned that this previously friendly man, that appeared to be a gentleman in her previous contacts with him was suddenly preventing her from leaving, was assaulting and battering her."

In the docs, McNulty claims she "communicated her objection and lack of consent," but he refused to stop and began "fondling [her] through her dress and between her legs."


McNulty claims Ben then pushed her onto the bed, and "pulled her underpants off and proceeded to penetrate her."

McNulty claims that she gave Roethlisberger several warnings, saying things like, "You don't want to do this" and "Please don't." She also claims she warned Ben that she wasn't on any type of birth control -- to which Ben allegedly responded, "Don't worry, I'll pull out."

According to PFT, McNulty claims in the lawsuit that after the incident, she went to the bathroom, and "tried to pull herself together."

When she emerged, McNulty claims that Roethlisberger asked, "There are cameras on this room, aren't there?"
She replied, "Yes, there are cameras everywhere."

McNulty claims Ben quickly became "stern," kicked her out of the room and said, "If anyone asks you, you fixed my television. You fixed my television. Now go!"

Roethlisberger has denied all of McNulty's allegations and cites the fact that no criminal investigation was ever conducted.

She is not credible . She probably wants money. Famous people get accused a lot anymore. If someone thinks they can get money from you,even to go away they accuse you of something not true. She sounds like a she is mentally ill. Guys you need to grow up and quit thinking it is worth it to have a quick roll with someone. You better trust explicitly who you sleep with . I believe in the trust but verify approach .

If you got raped why would you run to the "rapiest" bathroom instead of leaving the hotel room. I don't by it. And why wait a year to say something.

For those of you who claim she is lying, why is it that when one of these idiots do things like this, you all blame the woman or say it's alie? You all think these so called hot shots can do no wrong. Look at the truch behing Cris Brown and how you all said "he'd never hit Rihanna". Well truth has come from his mouth finally so why don't you believe this woman? You have NO idea what it's like to be RAPED by some hot shot. You are scared because you know jerks like ou will say it's a lie, so you keep quiet. Then after it's ruined our life mentally, you finally realize you have to come forward or they will do it again. Those of you who have never been raped, ask your mom what she would do at this young age, or maybe ask your wife or sister. You all might learn something. This idiot, known for his drinking and running around in bars is probaly 100% guilty. At least I believe the law s hould get to the truth, NOT THE MEDIA. And oh yea, she was an employee of the hotel. Do you all know what her job was? NO you don't so shut up until YOU HAVE ALL THE FACTS.

How are people supposed to believe you were raped if you didnt call the police, didnt go to the hospital, have no bruises, or have no dna evidence? ..........The absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct.......... This women does a dis-service to women who are actually raped and makes actual rape victims cases tougher than they need be.

I WOULD ASSUME ANY SANE WOMAN WOULDN'T WAIT A YEAR TO REPORT A RAPE-I DON'T THINK THESE ATHLETES HAVE TO RAPE ANYONE FOR SEX-IT'S READILY AVAILABLE TO THEM, SOME GIRLS CAN'T STAND BEING TOSSED ASIDE AFTERWARDS!! SO THEY WANT REVENGE-RIDICULOUS-I DON'T BUY IT!!

DEBBY, WE ALL FEEL FOR ANY WOMAN THAT HAS BEEN RAPED AND WANT JUSTICE FOR THEM, UNFORTUNATELY, THERE ARE THOSE WHO CRY RAPE LIKE THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF, UNLESS, HER JOB TITLE WAS TV REPAIRMAN, THEN SHE HAD NO BUSINESS GOING INTO HIS ROOM TO FIX A TV, HELLO-THERE'S YOUR FIRST CLUE, EVER HEARD OF GROUPIES? WHY WAIT A YEAR TO CLAIM SEXUAL ASSAULT? RUN INTO SOME MONEY TROUBLES? IF REAL RAPE VICTIMS ARE TO BE TAKEN SERIUOSLY IN THIS COUNTRY, WE CAN'T HAVE GIRLS HAVING SEX WITH FAMOUS GUYS, THEN WHEN THEY DON'T A CALL BACK-CRY RAPE, WE'LL SEE HOW MUCH EVIDENCE/WITNESSES, SHE HAS TO SUBSTANTIATE THIS CLAIM, MY GUESS IS VERY LITTLE-IF ANY, BUT IF IT'S TRUE, I'LL BE THE FIRST TO APOLOGIZE.

sham wow guy's wonky eye    

To Katie, who thinks I missed the point in the story about the tv not being broken. I read the whole thing and it stinks of lies!! Any person, whether they are a hotel employee or not, knows it is against the law for a camera to be placed in a private room. So Ben asking her if there are cameras in the room after she came out of the bathroom, sounds completely ridiculous! AND who the hell goes into the bathroom to put themselves back together after being raped???? I would've ran like hell out of the room, clothes or no clothes. THAT footage would've been caught on the hallway cameras, then u go to the police right away and it would prove what happened. This nutty chicks story looks like a piece of swiss cheese and sounds like a sexual fantasy of hers that she had of him except she substituted the sex with rape. She is full of it, pull your head out of your butt., this one is a swindler and low life of the worst kind. He may not be the nicest guy in the world but he is not a rapist. He should contersue her and make her life miserable. Maybe she will think twice before she does crap like this again. I have worked in hotels before in their marketing depts. and I know if a famous person, athelete requests something to be fixed or if another employee requests something be fixed in their room, they do it in no time, no way would they ignore it or have to make multiple requests for something to be done. She is a lying skank bag..plain and simple.
