Ben Roethlisberger Accused of Sexual Assault

3/5/2010 5:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Roethlisberger Sexual AssaultPittsburgh 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.

In addition to the Milledgeville Police Dept, we've learned the Georgia Bureau of Investigations is also investigating.

As we previously reported, Roethlisberger is being sued by a Reno woman, Andrea McNulty, who claims the QB sexually assaulted her in 2008.

UPDATE: We're told Ben Roethlisberger has already been interviewed by police. We're also told no formal charges have been filed at this point.

UPDATE 3:30 PM EST: A rep from the Steelers tells TMZ, "We are gathering information on this incident - until then we have no further comment."

He deserves what he gets, I am tired of sportspeople, who think they are entitle to rape women and do not have to pay for it. Ugly guy, who wants to go to bed with him.

lol at tiger woods comment. Ben Rapelesberger has been know around pitts as a p...y hound, I would have thought the incident last year would have settled him down. He needs to find a nice girl and settle down, or he will end up going to the same clinics as Tiger! It's going to be hard to live this second accusation down, even it it's untrue.

Wow the media is sure keeping this hushhush...(hmm wonder why?). Folks ready to kill Mike Vick over some dogs but want to protect a rapist! Where there's smoke there's fire, this isnt the first time he's been accused. Im from the milledgeville area, I feel terrible for the girl who is accusing him. I really believe he did it, she reported it to the police and got treated at a hospital...it's not like she called his lawyer and threatened to file a civil suit. People being so quick to blame the victim is probably why him and people like him get to go on to another victim
