The Milledgeville Police Department released a copy of the accuser's written statement to cops on March 5 -- in which she told police that Ben had been making "crude sexual remarks" to her in the hours before the alleged incident.

In her written statement, the accuser said she and some of her friends had been bar-hopping with Ben and his crew before they ended up at Ben's VIP area at Capital City nightclub.

The accuser says when she arrived to the VIP area, Ben's bodyguard grabbed her by the arm and brought her to a "side door/hallway and sat me on a stool."

The accuser continues,  "[the bodyguard] left and Ben came back with his penis out of his pants. I told him it wasn't OK."

The accuser claims she tried to leave through a nearby door, which turned out to be a restroom. The woman claims she continued to tell Ben that "It was not OK," but he had sex with her anyway.

The woman told cops Ben "then left without saying anything."

These body guards were off duty police officers. They should be fired from their jobs.

Shame on the Rooney Family, the Steelers coaches and players---they all have known this has been Ben's M.O. ever since he got there. Whenever he would travel, he would call ahead that his "entourage" was coming and to have "things ready"...its all code for Ben and his bodyguards and hanger ons were going to have their way with that towns women. There are Club Managers now on record in Chicago saying, this is old news---he's operated this way for years and it was common knowledge in the Steelers organization, ownership and the Team. Shame on the Pittsburgh Steelers Organization and Rooney Family for helping enable what was only inevitable---Rape. Add his name to a long list of sports rapists. If Goodell doesnt give it to him good, and the Steelers for looking the other way while Ben and his "traveled", then let them go the way of the Pirates of that Town---nobody cares anymore.

This man should be in jail. There are women who try to take rich people(Like the Seagal story), but this woman has back up witness. Multiple witness confirm the first thing out of her mouth was help me, I was raped. It was not hey, I just got lucky with a football player.
What should be the deciding factor is was the "ripped". A woman who has willing sex with someone, would not have her genitals ripped. A woman forced to have sex, will be ripped and bleeding.
This is one of the reasons it is so important to have a victim checked at the hospital.

Yeah, I'm failing to see, that if she was so uncomfortable with his crude remarks all night, why she kept bar hopping around with him, dozens of patrons say she was all over him AND she went alone to a private area to wait for him by herself. Sounds fishy.

Well I have to agree that bathroom sex is not okay. Ben can afford a room.

The only reason that there was no DNA was because he did not spirt his demon seed.

I'll bet it wasn't a very big penis if he's got to rape women to have sex.

I find it hard to believe this chick. One minute it's "hey free drinks from a celeb" and the next it's "he raped me"....not sure about this.

First off... If you are so uncomfortable by someone's "crude sexual remarks", why would you stay near that person for the rest of the night? Seriously, get a brain. Personally, I feel that Ben made some stupid decisions that night.. but this girl and all of her friends are nothing but liars. This was all a ploy to get money and when she realized that her story was going to fall apart, she decided to drop it all. Unfortunately for all involved, this ridiculously ignorant girl didn't come to her senses before making up such a boneheaded story.



And if by some off chance any of her story is true... too bad for her. People need to start teaching their children how to act and that by being completely wasted (especially underage) you are going to make foolish decisions and then stand the potential to have no one believe you when you try to explain what "really did" happen. Maybe this will be a nice learning experience for everyone involved.
