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.

Many golf courses now are all ages and sexes. If you have to go pee, get way off the course, or hold it until you get to the club house. How would you like your little girl see some old guy whip out and pee in front of them? Common human decency please.

The woman who complained about this is well known to the police, country club, home owners' association, school district teachers and administrators. Her angry wrath strikes fear in the hearts of many hard-working, highly competent pleasant people in this otherwise lovely town.

That's why women should be allowed on golf courses. What guy hasn't pissed out on the course. Jesus man, I can hear this lady now. If I was the pro shop I would have said, "ya, is this your first time seeing a man piss on the course?"

The golf course has 'country club' in the name. If it is in fact a country club, then chances are it's private. So, really, he was peeing in private. Besides, if she didn't like it she could have turned away. PERV!!
