Big Ben's Accuser -- The Bodyguard Set Me Up

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."

lol! Ben is right! It was his bodyguard who took the girl to bathroom and they think bodyguard was "ben" ? LOL! Ben is not a friggin bodyguard duh! Those girls have fail because they have been drunk! In case you don't know that Ben does not drink alcohol because he is a football star duhhhhhhhhhh! How can you be so stupid? Ben knows that and if he did then he would be suspended from NFL and have to pay the fined! Have you ever heard of that ? Ben is way smarter than that so the girls suck and failed!

I should also mention - her "eyewitness" as her friend that backs her up, contradicts the accuser's story. The friend says the accuser was "dragged" into the bathroom from the hall - the accuser says she tried to run and went smack into a bathroom (how drunk are you to realize, a giant sign with a woman's bathroom icon on it is NOT the exit) and he came in there and raped her.

WILLING    

You can't "Rape" the willing. She was willing to hang around an NFL Quarterback. She was willing to get free drinks. She was willing to go to VIP section of all these clubs. She was willing to have sex with Ben and then call it RAPE. And know she is willing to sue, claiming that she was RAPED. This does hurt actual woman who are in fact RAPED. Stupid idiots girls like this.

Ben sounds like your typical entitled jock slob but I would like to ask the accuser. If you met Ben with that Devil shirt, wearing a trucker hat and looking generally unkept and he had a minimum wage job, would she still be hanging around him that night? I'm guessing if he was not an NFL star she wouldn't have given him the time of day

I'm in no way siding with Ben, just making a statement.



To the girl who was "allegedly" raped: If a man you hardly know is making "crude sexual remarks" to you HOURS before the "alleged incident" you need to learn to listen, REALLY listen. I bet your intuition was talking to you all night but you wearn't listening.



Hopefully this can be a lesson to any other non-listening women.

This is worse than I thought. If he had sex in a bathroom with a young girl with a .2 BAC, there is not way it was consensual. She was too drunk to consent. Period. Besides...the story is believable from beginning to end. It was a wild night out with friends in public places. Whether he was crude or not, who would have thought that she would be raped in a bathroom? Her friends saw what was going on and tried to stop it. What does that tell you? They immeidately reported it. This man is sick and a rapist and will definitely do it again. Rapists aren't about sex, they are about power. He called her a tease and basically wanted to prove to her who was really in charge. He will do this again, because he probably gets off on the fact that he got away with it.

Sounds like she had plenty of time to leave in between bars, (had she wanted to). Most respectible girls wouldn't have been there in the first place. Sounds like she saw a good way to pick up some extra spending money.

Huh?    

Huh?? I'm confused. Didn't the police take the videao tapes from the club, and report that they saw Ben walk down the hall?? If they saw him walking, don't you think that the camera would have picked up him walking with his penis out of his pants?? I hate to say it, but this gilrs story just doesn't seem right. If you were being raped, why would you just keep saying this isn't ok, why didn't she at least try to fight back, knock crap over to leave some sort of sign that a struggle took place?? I don't understand how she listed Bens weight and height to a T like she checked his NFL profile, but on her statement, she doesn't know how to spell his last name. If she was raped, I hope she finds some sort of way to heal. If not, I hope all her hair falls out, she gains 150 lbs and get butt acne.

To #27 - no one is saying Ben is guilt free. However, I don't think he deserves to have his name drug through the mud if this woman's story is untrue. There appear to be a lot of inconsistencies with her story. Top it off with hearing "he was making crude sexual remarks all night" and this woman stayed around him along with her illegal drinking and you have to wonder what credibility this girl has. Ben gets all of his dirty laundry brought out... but no one knows anything about this girls or what kind of past she has. I'm not saying that someone that has been raped should have to have all of their past brought to light... but does it seem fair that she is clearly not been totally truthful and his name is the only one that is tarnished??
