Ben Roethlisberger Photographed With Accuser

3/8/2010 3:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Roethlisberger had his arm around his accuser before the alleged assault ... and she had a big grin as she wrapped her arms around him. No doubt Ben's lawyer -- rightly or wrongly -- will make hay of this.

We now know the accuser's identity -- we will not post the picture in this story. A photo of the two taken at Capital City bar in Milledgeville, Georgia shortly before the alleged incident shows a cozy scene -- at least at that moment in time.

Of course, a photo never tells the whole story, and the mood could have darkened in an instant. Police sources tell TMZ the woman claims Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her in the women's bathroom.

And, other women in the bar also posed for photos with Roethlisberger before the alleged incident.

"You should be ASHAMED of yourselves, TMZ! This c-word can go out there and make whatever accusations she wants, and you will post it. This is ruining Big-Ben's life, but she can stay completely anonymous and you won't even post her picture.

When Mike Nifong railroaded those Duke Lacrosse players, the media did the same thing, and the lying whore who made those clearly false allegations is still basically anonymous.

If criminal defendants are truly "innocent until proven guilty" then it is unfair to try their cases in the media without reveling important, and relevant information about the accusers. "


Only "c word" is the pathetic mess who gave you life, moron. Rape apologist, don't you have a clue? It's obvious you are dateless and bitter. No wonder good women don't like you, boy.

Im going to have to agree with Greg. "Come on - what is "aggresively hitting on" ???? thats a bunch of crap. These people are trying to make flirtting sound bad. Innocent until proven guilty - this is AMERICA. Lets get all the facts before we judge." The only proof out there that he raped her is that she said it happened.
