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.

Just because someone is drunk, doesnt mean they don't know what they are doing. This is all bs in my opinion. She wanted to have sex with this guy and she did, end of story. Just because she felt like a stupid skank later, thats her problem. From reading other stories before I had no idea her and her friends just so happened to keep running into these guys at different bars. Yeah right what a coincidence, they weren't following these guys around right? LOL

I fail to see why the cop saying this FACT should be forced out.



"this f*cking bitch is drunk" or "this bitch is drunk off her ass accusing Ben of assaulting her."



It's a clear look into her condition; drunk off her ass.



So Roethlisberger showed his wanker?
How's that different than southern women lifting their tops?
They do it all the time.



Cops are losing their jobs and Roethlisberger will forfit hundreds of thousands over the drunk off her ass girl who said it's not OK but then he had sex with me girl.
Did he rape you; no,...maybe,...I can't remember!



Evidence? No.



DA Evidence? No.



Hospital Evidence? No.

Well, if i want to rape some f'n drunk bitch i know where to go now! Since were calling it like it is Sgt. Blash... your a no good f'n n-gger for treating a rape victim who's trying to file a complaint this way. Why did they let the jerk resign? Why wasn't he fired? Why are they NEVER fired? WTH does a cop have to do to get fired anymore? Rape and murder a woman while on duty then go on national TV and admit it and say the bitch deserved it? I swear it seems like no matter what they do they're always given the opportunity to resign first.

Ben...stop raping drunk girls in the bathroom. We know you are ugly and fat but you have enough money to pay for what you did. She needs to get paid. Go to a prostitute dude and stop raping girls.

I am not defending Ben, He needs to drop the attitude, grow up, and make smarter decisions.Personally, as a STEELER fan, I am sickened by this whole situation. But, I am not so sure I can believe this 20 year old girl either. Her story has changed. She was trashed , and probably had oral sex with someone she had just met that night. Really? Sounds like her friends may have had something to do with her bringing charges up on Ben, not that he didn't deserve it. Maybe now he will think before he drops his pants.

It's a he said/she said with the main players being drunk so it would be hard for a DA to bring this case to trial. Still not sure why everyone is defending Ben as he seemed to have acted in a very ugly way. If you read the complete report you'll see the body guards were cops from PA. They requested that only girls can come in their roped VIP section (to avoid jealous boyfriend) One of the cops/bodyguard asked the girl how old they were--they said 19 and 20. Yet these girls were given numerous shots and the cop/bodyguard paid the bar tab. This girl got very drunk & her friends became concerned. They said she should not be alone with Ben, but the bodyguards blocked the bathroom. When they tried to open it it was locked. They told the bartender about it & he said that nothing would happen as Ben is a Super bowl champion & wouldn't do anything to harm his career. There's more in the report including the fact that the Milledgeville police didn't put crime tape around the bathroom so it was scrubbed with chlorox by the Janitor, so no evidence could be collected that way.

MaryMac and Upsetmom:
I'm sorry to hear about your stories. There is a lot of victim-blaming going on here and the reason for that is fear. People like to blame the victim b/c if they admit that bad things can happen to anybody they'll have to admit that they too are vulnerable. Its much easier to say the victim caused it or deserved it.
I have to say that I got chills when I read that the friends claim the bodyguards kept them out of the area. Absolutely terrifying - not only what Ben allegedly did, but also the massive cover-up and conspiracy allegations.
