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.

I cannot believe so of the comments here, as someone who works and has counselled rape victims, a very high percentage never report being raped, basically because of the majority of comments on this post. The person raped (male or female) has to first overcome the trauma that has just occured; then they have to have a support system that will believe/support them through this time. As the woman in question said her employer's did not believe/support her in the beginning, so why would she go further. Some of would have some eye opening experiences if you asked just some of the women in your lives if they have been assualted sexually or physically, you might be shocked (latest statistics say aprox. 5/10 fall into these categories, and these are just the ones who have come forth. I attended a church service for battered and bruised women, and people you would not have thought were assualted/raped; women(mother's in there 40's 50's and older stood up and gave their testimonies. And guess what, none of their family members especially husbands never knew.

...wait and see. she says she tried to call other employees to come and fix the system. where did she call from? her cell-phone or a house-phone? did anyone answer, and did she actually explain the situation to another employee? if no one answered her calls, why didn't they answer? she says she tried to contacht "other" employees, i.e, more that one. is it common practice at this hotel that seems to house high-profile guests for several employees not to answer their phones?...

OK well after reading some of your guys comments..... I work at a hotel and when our guest call or run into us and ask us to check out something with a tv or other equiptment we go into their room if our mantaince person is not here. So yes we are to atleast go see if it is something we ourselves can fix. Now the rest of it that she is claiming is a little fishy because we are told to always carry out cell phones and be on alert. Thats just dumb that she didnt fight harder

Why would she answer his questions about the cameras? wouldnt she have been in a panic to get help? Someone who just got raped WOULD not wait around and hold a conversation with her assailant. She is upset because he kicked her out after banging her. What a skank! She is trying to set this man up!! There are pics of her smiling days after this incident. Honey, if you were raped..you wouldnt be smiling at the papparazi. HELLO. If someone is raping you, who the hell says, "Please dont" it'd be more like, "Get the f#ck off me" and you fight, claw, bite, and get the hell up OUT the room.

~On BENS side~    

Ben didnt do it. Now come on this happened last summer and only now she is suing? They may have had sex... but shes probably all upset that he didnt continue to see her after. She sound nuts!! IF she was really raped she would have gone to the ER for a rape kit... called the police and gotten the alleged tapes from the room... At honestly look at her.. I have seen the man on many occasions here in Pittsburgh and believe me she is definately NOT his type.. he could have a variety of women he would not choose her... shes ugly as sin.

It will be interesting to see whether he really takes it to court as he says right now or whether it ends in a settlement. That will say a lot. If it goes to court, there should be a lot of employees subpoenaed (sp) from Harrads. I think going public is to damage the casino she worked for just as much as go after him for whatever transpired. I'm keeping an open mind.

My biggest thing in this case is why would you not go to the hospital to get a rape kit done ? If this was a person that was not famous you know she would've. I think it's sad for the real women that get raped. This is why they wait or don't say anything at all. I know I wouldn't say he raped me he's hot !!!!

This Girl must be hurting for money so bad. Ben is going to come out of this OK. and after this is all over he should sue her ass for mental anguish and disturbing his mental concentration for the new NFL season. she waits exactly 1 year to say she has been raped?, Now that Ben signed a 102 million dollar contract do you actually think he is going to jeopardize his carrier for some little nobody. Please get real!!!

I live in Pittsburgh- and come from a long line of Steeler fans and when I was a kid I worked in a little airport snack shop where the Original Super Steelers came after away games- TERRY BRADSHAW was like SANTA CLAUS to kids and Adults too! He treated everyone with good grace and sense of humor. All the Steelers were respected world wide then and up -UNTIL BIG BEN THE IDIOT- came to town! His Ass*$^# antics have truly tarnished our Cities reputation! He is so RUDE to the children, literally stinks like he doe not bathe- Talks like he is mentally slow- and about as ugly as a bull dog! In night clubs around the "Burg" he mauls and pulls at women and makes filthy comments! His entourage of pals- are either just like him Or on the side lines rolling their eyes at the Big Cheese head!
Tom Brady You are not BEN- So get over yourself and quit assualting the ladies who turn you down! Just because a few ,Fat bellied Steeler FANS idolize you and believe you are deserving of whatever you want- Does not make it so!! Clean up your act, (TAKE A SHOWER AND USE SOAP!) talk like a Gentleman instead of aToothless, retard.. and maybe.. just maybe you can attract a female the way most men do.. instead of having to tie them down to keep them from fleeing you -like a rat from a fire!!
This incident at Harrah's is not Ben's first - and I know as soon as other Women get enough nerve- (or can somehow get through to those who share the Ben Roethlisbeger mentality)- they will tell the world how this Jerk forced himself unwantingly many ,many times!!
What goes around Comes around- AND Ben will not be on his throne for much longer- He may get wealthy for a few more years- but the way this fool spends it- It won't last long. AND his prospects for future millions that would be made doing ads for promoting products etc....keeps getting smaller by the minute!
And one final Note to all of you "TIL the DEATH" Ben worshippers- Go now and site down face to face with YOUR OWN DAUGHTERS-YOUR LITTLE GIRLS, or SISTERS, OR GIRLFRIENDS! - Tell her how you Whole Heartedly believe that she should FEEL PRIVILEGED IF SOME ONE AS GREAT AS BIG BEN actually ASSUALTED HER SEXUALLY-OR FORCED her-AGAINST HER WILL - HELD DOWN AND HURT BY THE BIG BRUTE-WHILE HE WHISPERS VULGARITIES IN HER EAR!! TELL HER HOW SHE SHOULD LOVE IT-- Go on- I dare you!!
Hopefully- the majority of you guys will change your attitudes- but I doubt it???
