Roethlisberger Accuser -- I Tried to Report It

7/21/2009 7:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben RoethlisbergerThe woman accusing Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault claims she tried to tell the head of hotel security about the incident the day after it happened -- but the guy completely blew her off and threatened her job.

In her lawsuit filed last week in Nevada, Andrea McNulty claims Guy Hyder -- the chief of security at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe -- told her she was "over-reacting" and that "most girls would feel lucky to have sex with someone like Ben Roethlisberger."

McNulty also claims Hyder told her that John Koster -- the president of the hotel - will "personally fire you for starting rumors about Roethlisberger's personal life."

McNulty also claims Hyder told her that Koster would be impressed by the sexual encounter, allegedly saying "Koster would love you even more if he knew about this ... Koster would suck his d*ck if Roethlisberger let him."

In the suit, McNulty claims she assumed the incident would be investigated by hotel security, but Hyder "did not do his job of investigating the assault." McNulty also claims she was "afraid of the consequences of going to police authorities since it was obvious to her that Harrah's and it's personnel ... would side with and support Roethlisberger."

McNulty also claims several Harrah's employees broke into her home and ripped files off of her computer, presumably for the purpose of defending themselves against a possible lawsuit.

Several months after the incident -- after McNulty claims she sought psychological treatment because of the encounter -- she claims she had a conversation with Hyder. McNulty says she told Hyder that she had been hospitalized specifically because of the Roethlisberger incident. Hyder allegedly replied, "I figured that was what was wrong, but I thought it was just like a date rape thing."

McNulty claims her bosses told her she was on thin ice at work ... so she preemptively lawyered up.

McNulty is seeking $380,000 in medical fees plus an unspecified amount of punitive damages.

She probably believes Prince William wants to marry her and she'll be the Queen of England one day.

She's obviously a beaver tooth nutjob!!

No wonder Harrah's ignored her, they know she's got a few screws loose and the bolts are rattling around in her head.

I wonder whose baby she is holding in the picture? The Reno police had better put out an APB, there's a crazy beaver grabbing up babies and accusing football players of rape.

You people are sick    

What is wrong with so many of you people?

Like some have said, sexual assaults are not about sex or attraction, they are about power and control.

Not all assaults are violent, leaving the woman screaming for the perpetrator to stop. Any type of non consensual touching or activities are assault. If she said no, he should have stopped, no matter if she was screaming for him to stop, or was just telling him no, that she wasn't on birth control, etc.

It's completely likely that after the assault happened, and her discouraging encounter with her hotel superiors, she was convinced that the police would not do anything. So she never waited to the hospital, and only after therapy was she able to try and bring the man to justice.

You need to stop making negative comments and let the investigation, and the facts that come from it, show what really happened. Just stop and think about if it was your sister, daughter or friend who was in this situation.

Yeah. Right. Another wannabe trying to get a buyout. Pathetic. If she didn't report it at all I might believe her (women often don't report rape or sexual harassment), but she claims she did, then didn't. Why would she assume that guy would file a report? Sounds like she had post-coital regret (not rape, not rape, not rape) and can't take responsibility for her actions. Way to take the sexist route and ruin someone else's life, because you make bad choices.

He should sue her for sexual harassment. Sounds like she came back to the room to be with him, when she could have let someone who knows how to fix a sound system do it. If she touched him, she should lose her job and life too.

Sounds like she was looking for witnesses, more-so than reporting the crime itself. Which means she was trying to set Ben up. I hope she doesn't get one red cent from the guy. Something else that doesn't make any sense is, the files on her computer. How would her co-workers know what she had on her computer? Did she e-mail them on the subject? Sounds like she was desparate to build her case. It almost sounds like she had it all figured out before it happened. Does that mean she led Ben on, and at the very last min., told him no, knowing it was too late?

The embarassing part is now the world knows Ben hit that worthless buck toothed trailor trash deformed nose slut. I'm betting anything her husband or whomever found out she was sleeping around a year later and now she's trying to call it rape. I bet she bragged that you banged and NFL player. Ben wtf were you thinking? I don't care if it's 3:00am and your drunk fo your horses ugly is ugly man. You screwing this half rabbit half horse, 100% ugly woman is a true act of charity to the beautifly challenged.

Of course hotel security would back the hotel and not want a scandal, so what moron would tell only them?

300,000 dollars? for the medical? you could get a heart lung transplant for that

Claim this rape a year later? what proof is there? none
Lets assume the story is true, then she should have gone to the cops.....she didnt, so she loses

lets assume the story is a lie. Then ANYONE can go to the newspapers and courts and FK someones life up for the rest of their life, their reputation is now in the toilet, and this is JUST AN ACCUSATION

our countries laws suck
