Ben Roethlisberger Named in Urine Investigation

7/13/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained a report from police in Dublin, Ohio which shows Ben Roethlisberger was investigated for allegedly peeing in public at a local golf course this past Friday.


According to the report, a woman named Nan Fowler phoned the pro shop at the Country Club at Muirfield Village around 6:53 PM and complained that a white, tall male -- sporting a blue golf shirt and khaki shorts -- was "urinating into some trees."

The report states that Nan was informed by the woman at the pro shop that the person who fit that description was Big Ben. Nan then called police and told them that the NFL star was peeing in public.

Cops eventually arrived to the scene and spoke with country club management -- and later determined that no crime had been committed.  Sources connected to the investigation tell us cops never interacted with Roethlisberger -- because Ben was "long gone" by the time authorities had arrived.

TMZ spoke with reps at Muirfield who tell us, "We had a full slate of golfers that day ... it may have been anyone."

Of course, this isn't the first time Ben's penis has been at the center of controversy -- earlier this year, he was accused of raping a young woman inside a nightclub bathroom. That case was ultimately dropped after investigators determined there wasn't enough evidence to proceed.

So far, no comment from Roethlisberger's camp.

What man hasn´t done this countless times. His one mistake was not picking a more secluded place (unless this woman was stalking him wherever he went).

This is news why? All male golfers pee in the trees. They can be standing next to a bathroom on the course and still pee in the trees. As a cart girl we count penis sightings as a joke.
It's a guy thing they learn as little boys. Too funny.

Why do all of this man's problems revolve around bathrooms? Did he have serious potty training issuse as a toddler?

OMG-- you are kidding me. Some people do not have anything better to do than be a freaking tattle tale. If the police were called every single time a man urinated on the golf course NOTHING but potty patrol would get done. GET A FREAKING LIFE.

That lady should be charged with wasting the police's time. Who doesn't pee in the trees when golfing? Not a huge fan of Roethliberger's character but this is absolutely one of the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. What is going south of the border these days ;)

What's the big deal? Perhaps big fish in a small puddle -- of pee.

Why was the nameless woman creeping around on all fours in the pee free zone? Did she want a look at the Big Ben?

my friend taught me a phrase many years ago "where ever i may be let my pee fly free" .when your out on the course and had a few sodas/beers with the break from front 9 to back 9 like most golfers do it does become a problem when you have to pee and are a mile away from the nearest bathroom.ive golfed for years and have said there should be porta potties along the course for just this reason.ive pissed in the trees sides of roads and in the woods but i didnt have some stuffy bitch that acted like the woman on caddyshack all up in my business.what was with this person concentrating on what this the pee pee bandit was doing in the woods so closely.the person in the pro shop had absolutely NO RIGHT at all to name a person without actually seeing it happen and this big mouth opened her mouth and opened the doors for a big law suit by ben.

Nothing wrong with nature peeing. You just have to be a little discrete.

IT WASN'T HIM. It was someone in his foursome. Maybe if everyone wasn't stalking him, this crap would not happen. Tired of all the BS going on in the world. Everyone needs to find something better to do with their time. LEAVE HIM ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
