Witnesses: Ben's Bodyguards Wouldn't Help Us

4/15/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Friends of Ben Roethlisberger's accuser say the NFL star's bodyguards and the club owner refused to let them help their friend as she was allegedly being raped ... this according to documents obtained from the Milledgeville Police Department.

Witnesses: Ben's Bodyguards Wouldn't Help Us

According to the documents, witnesses told police they saw Ben's bodyguard escort the alleged victim to a backroom where the tiny bathroom was located -- and Ben followed shortly after.

One of the accuser's friends told police she approached Ben's bodyguard and "told him that [the alleged victim] was in no shape to be back there with Ben." The friend said she tried to open the bathroom door but it was locked, "and the security guards acted like they had no idea what was going on."

Another friend said she approached the owner of the club to get him to unlock the door -- but he refused and said "Ben's an NFL quarterback, he won't do anything to ruin his reputation." The owner gave a statement to cops, and made no mention of making the comment.

Both witnesses say once the alleged victim walked out of the bathroom, she immediately claimed Ben had raped her.

Big Ben's bodyguards are as guilty as he is....he's a rapist and thinks he's entitled to whatever he wants. I hope he gets his head knocked off this year in league. He's not a man he's a piece of crap that is an embarassment to his football team.

I'm calling BS.. B, you are taking this a little personal, you want to share why.. ?? If you read all the TMZ articles about this you'll see that the whole thing is very contradicting, and at best he may have said hello to this chick, but I think she's just trying to get her 5 seconds of fame, and maybe a little mad because Ben didn't give her the time of day..

Yeah nevermind that she claims she was raped and reported it right away, and yet they aren't prosecuting that. Why isn't she being prosecuted for underage drinking? /sarcasm



Who gives a f__k? The 21 yr old drinking age is bull**** anyway. It used to be 18, the age of majority, throughout this nation until a bunch of *******s at MADD persuaded the federal government it should be 21. Then the feds had to strong arm the states into changing their laws. It was put to them that they change state law or else, the or else being withholding federal highway funds to the states, because the feds have no f__king jurisdiction over a states drinking age to start with. The feds should mind there own damned business when it's a states right to determine their own drinking age. I'm sick of federal mandates that compel states to change their laws. If our founding fathers wanted the federal government to have such broad powers they would have given it to them!

Behind a curtain, behind a door, through a room, into a halway, and behind a second door... and she was not consenting? On what basis did her so-called friends assert that she and Ben did not want the privacy of a bathroom?



When they found out that she was alone with Ben they became jealous and attempted to disrupt the fun under the guise of protecting their friend. When she discovered how much of a conflagration had been caused by her social coup d'etat, the she cried raped.



The truth is, she was never meant to be with Ben that night. It was the group leader's prerogative to have sex with Ben. Rape was the only solution or the social order of the sorority would be completely disrupted and a suicide by bullying could have occured as it did in Hadley, Massachussets when females fought over a male.



Remember guys that when you pump a wad into a girl like that there are probably at least two or three other girls who believed that your wad belonged to each of them alone. Better just hope that the little sexpot who is fighting with the clique leader doesn't decide to throw you under the bus!

Cleary this all must have happened since the DA is pressing charges. Oh wait, they're not. If there isn't enough evidence to press charges then this is all hear-say, neither proven nor true.



Why hasn't she been arrested for under-age drinking as well as the bar getting fined for providing minors with alcohol? It is the law if anybody remembers what the hell that is. Personally, she is at fault for being in an over-age establishment when she isn’t over legal age herself. Had she not been where she wasn’t supposed to be then she would not have put herself in a position to have this, if anything, happen to her.
The LAPD must have shown these police officers how to not do their job.

Some of you people act like the whole thing was this girls fauilt, while others say Ben is a rapist. I don't care if she was under age and drinking. What went down there was wrong. I don't care if he was lured into a web of trouble. None of us were there, but you all seem to have your minds made up about her and him. I would hate to have some of you people on my jury if I were ever accused of a crime, or worse, if I was a victim.

Ben, Ben, Ben - this does not sound good.



That underage drinking issue is fascinating - what story of stars and fights and girls does NOT involve underage drinkers? They never get arrested.



If the clubs enforced the laws it would be a boring world here in gossip land, I guess.

NO WONDER THEY COULDNT PRESS CHARGES. THE ACCUSER TOLD AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT STORY ABOUT HOW SHE WENT INTO THE BATHROOM ON HER OWN WHEN SHE THOUGHT IT WAS AN EXIT. DUH. JUST SOME MORE CHEAP DRUNKEN GIRLS LOOKING FOR EASY MOOLA

Having sex with someone who has been drinking can be considered rape. Regardless if she gave consent at the time. Because the persons judgment was altered by the alcohol. Therefore the person being accused of rape would be considered of taking advantage of that person and raping them

I stand by my comment, whether the girl is impaired or not, no means no.
