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."

Wasn't it just last year another woman accused him of raping her? I can't remember the details but Big Ben was painted as the victim, and she "asked" for it. Doesn't surprise me he would rape another. Rapists are predators and 9/10 times they are repeat offenders.

An athlete with money should have a 24 hour camera crew follow him around because it is the only way to avoid the extortionists that are running amuck in this country. Get a job little girl and make your own money rather than trying to steal it. This country is finished, finished I tell you!

Ben, Ben, Ben...you just don't listen. How many times do I have to tell you? Hookers, porn stars and waitresses and wannabe's...it's the way to go. Stay away from "real woman", they have reasonable intelligence!

Georgia? Ouch I don't like sweaty whores so I am never been there before. Lets get a picture of the Slut before we judge for what she is; a low life meth smoking whitetrash who sold her baby to buy some clothes to get the job as a coctail waitress at this whore joint where this supposedly happened.

Sounds alot like Reno, they must be communicating via a whitetrash Blog, HOWTOSUEARICHSuccessfulreatQB.com.
