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

4/15/2010 4:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ben Roethlisberger's accuser told police the QB's bodyguard grabbed her by the arm and sat her in a secluded hallway in the Capital City nightclub -- setting the stage for the alleged rape


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."

>Melissa (#79): That's actually part of the point. My guess is that you probably COULD have ended up in that situation,too, since those crass sexual comments were his (neanderthal) way of "hitting on you." But you were too smart to want to go anywhere near that situation or him. You saw him for who he truly is: a chauvenistic, frat-boy creep. But this young girl couldn't get beyond the "a celebrity is paying attention to me" stage. He definitely took advantage of her naivete...which is probably another reason why people under 21 aren't allowed in bars: they don't have the experience they could need to avoid predators like Ben Rothlisburger.

The press conference by the DA in Ga stated a rape kit was administered and there was no evidence of rape present. Interesting statement he made: "We don't prosecute morals, we prosecute crimes". As much as this guy continues to make bad decisions, I;m still for innocent until proven guilty. Sounds like this young lady bears a little responsibility for a making a few questionable decisions too that night.

Did the girl get in trouble for being underage and drinking in a bar. Did she show fake ID?

Geez people get a grip!! Look at all the reports. In the initial reports everyone is saying he was bein a great guy. Signing autographs buying drinks and in a great mood. Now, lets get to the lying accuser. First of all if you see this video release she looks soooo fricken distraught!! lol, yeah right! Then she proceeds to say he pulled his penis out the top of his pants????? didn't pull them down or unzip a zipper but out of the top!! LOL! He must be hung like a horse and know some great position to get penetration and ejaculation accomplished..LOL! Man some of your comments are just retarded. He is only guilty of being a dumbass and putting himself in that position AGAIN. Most of you are just Steeler haters cuz we are the best franchise in sports and we have 6, count um 6!!
