Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault by a young woman in Georgia, TMZ has learned.
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.
