Cop in Roethlisberger Case -- I Quit

4/15/2010 6:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The cop who first investigated Ben Roethlisberger for sexual assault has "resigned" in the wake of the release of a police report that shows he may have referred to the accuser as a "f*cking bitch" ... but TMZ has learned the cop didn't really have a choice.

Cop in Roethlisberger Case -- I Quit

We're told the Milledgeville Police officer -- Sergeant Jerry Blash -- turned in his resignation yesterday. He had been with the force for 8 years.

In the report, investigators claim that on the night of the alleged incident, Blash admitted that after he encountered the accuser, he may have made a comment similar to "this f*cking bitch is drunk" or "this bitch is drunk off her ass accusing Ben of assaulting her."

Investigators also report that on the night of the incident, Blash informed the accuser and her friends that "Roethlisberger has a lot of money" and if the women were to follow through with a police report, they "would be wasting their time."

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Blash was given a lose-lose option -- resign...or be fired.

FYI -- Blash is the same guy who posed for photos with Ben hours before he was approached by the alleged victim outside the Capital City nightclub in Georgia.

Now we are beginning to see the web of special treatment that Big Ben received stretching from the lowly beat cop straight to the DA. The only difference is, this is the only guy taking the fall. Isn't that always how it goes?

Now we know how the investigation did not secure the video tapes. I am sure Ben will send him some money for his help.

Sergeant Blash will be perfectly fine. He can work for the top Black businessmen in the country. He will definitely make more money than he does now. He still humbled himself and made the report and for that he's not such a bad person.



Like someone else mention he probably didn't believe that drunken slut, women put themselves in those type of situations also it's not always the man taking advantage. Stop feeling sorry for someone who had friends to help her make better choices and obviously it's not all it cracked up to be.

Good ol' boy **** never ends. Reminds of the time that Barry Bonds went to court for battering his wife. The judge asked the bastard for his autograph, in open court.

That pig got dis-respected! He had every right to kick someone's teeth in.



The po-LICE officer should have grabbed her by the neck and said in a OKPD voice "Now I don'take that from nobody!"



You mean some crooked judge actually did their job and fired a crooked cop??



Will wonders never cease.

The case should be reopened and Ben should be charged. Obviously this was being covered up and the victim was being bullied right from the get go.

NNNNNNNext......! Another s***bag, CORUPT cop "CAUGHT".! Now the city sadly has to go through ALL his active cases and DISMISS them. EVERY.....past arrest and conviction he was responsible for will no doubt be challenged by the people he (The S***BAG CORRUPT COP), arrested and testified against.



Imagine the cost this will be to the city.



Next time, don't hire ****heads.!

This pile of stuff is stinking more and more.



Everyone needs to pay attention. In this county if you are a woman who drinks, raping you is not against the law! The act of taking a drink means you consent to anything, and everything.
If I had teenage girls in this county, I would move.
