Posted a rumor that Ben is in trouble for peeing under a tree on a golf course in Columbus, OH. Turns out someone in Ben's foursome (not Ben) peed under a tree, a woman saw it and complained.

So I suppose Ben shouldn't play golf with guys who pee on golf courses now?

Ben Roethlisberger: Big Ben caught urinating on golf course?
Ben Roethlisberger - QB - PIT - Jul. 13 - 11:26 am et
Profootballtalk.com passes along "rumors" that suspended Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger was recently caught urinating on a Columbus (OH) golf course by a woman who supposedly now intends to press charges.
PFT's Mike Florio acknowledges that this is all rumor for now, and that the main source of the story is "multiple emails over the past two days." However, Florio does have a legitimate source who's confirmed Roethlisberger indeed was golfing in Columbus. The same source claims Big Ben was not the person urinating -- it was another member of Roethlisberger's foursome. Jul. 13 - 11:26 am et

A civilian pressing charges for someone peeing? People are retarded. Anyway, I pray it was someone other than Ben.

Here is some more on it....

Rumors fly of new Roethlisberger golf course incident
Posted by Mike Florio on July 13, 2010 11:19 AM ET
We've received multiple e-mails over the past two days from folks sharing rumors of a new incident involving Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and a body part other than his heart.

As the rumor goes (and it's spreading quickly), Roethlisberger was golfing in Columbus, Ohio, and he urinated on the course. Though it's not an uncommon event (I guess I can admit to it now since I haven't golfed in at least 14 years, which likely exceeds all applicable statutes of limitation), the complicating factor in this case arose from the fact (supposedly) that a woman witnessed the incident, that she complained about it, and that she now wants to press charges.

We've temporarily donned our journalism fedora (it even has a card sticking out of the ribbon that says "PRESS"), and we've learned from a source close to Roethlisberger that he was indeed golfing in Columbus, Ohio but that another member of his foursome peed under a tree, prompting a complaint from a woman.

Per the source, Roethlisberger got involved and helped to calm the woman down. (Hopefully, not with shots.)

So while, for now, it appears that Roethlisberger won't have to whip out the uromysitisis poisoning defense in order to avoid further scrutiny from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Ben may not be out of the woods. Just like the Mike Vick bang-bang birthday party, the incident can attract the kind of scrutiny that potentially leads to information prompting further punishment from Goodell -- or, possibly, a decision not to reduce Roethlisberger's suspension from six games to four.

Like I said in the thread I started, he's now not supposed to golf with people who pee under trees on golf courses???

:roll:

What's truly sad is how this rumor got started. People from Pittsburgh actually emailing Florio to tell him that Ben was caught peeing on a golf course, which as it turns out, isn't even true.

The woman had a DTWGP (down to watch guys pee) shirt. She's also in a sorority and her sisters concocted the whole story.

Apparently Ben is not safe around women in or out of a bathroom stall.

That's probably the gist of the pickup line he uses when he flashes girls on the course. He should stick to golfing with Natalie.

Police investigated Big Ben foursome

Police in Dublin, Ohio, today confirmed they investigated a complaint that a member of a golfing foursome that included Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was caught urinating behind a tree bordering the prestigious Muirfield Village Golf Club.

Dublin police said they did not issue any citations. The female property owner didn't want to press charges.

Roethlisberger was not the person seen urinating Thursday afternoon between the 17th and 18th holes and the country club agreed to handle the matter by reminding members to use restrooms, according to the police.

"We received a call that said a member of the party urinated on private property," said Dublin police spokesman David Ball. "We spoke to the golf course and they agreed to discuss this issue internally with their members."

Police didn't interview the foursome friends from Roethlisberger's hometown of Findlay, Ohio and they played through the 18 holes.

The NFL and Roethlisberger's agent, Ryan Tollner, declined to comment.

Board admins, can we get a smiley holding a sign that says "Florio Sucks"? It would probably be the most used smiley in the offseason, no scratch that, all the time sounds about right.

Besides, it's been hot lately and the course needed a little sprinkling anyways. :wink:

Inside stalls: Trouble.

Outside under a tree: Trouble.



Ben and anyone he's ever met or might be seen with in the future should just avoid excretory processes all together.

Ohio authorities last week investigated a complaint that a member of Ben Roethlisberger's golfing foursome urinated publicly on the Country Club at Muirfield course.

Dublin police said today that the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback didn't create the water hazard Friday behind a pine tree between the 17th and 18th holes of the course, which borders but isn't affiliated with a Jack Nicklaus-built course that's home to the PGA's Memorial Tournament.

Instead, it was one of three unnamed friends from Big Ben's hometown of Findlay, Ohio. The woman making the complaint didn't want to press charges and no citations were issued, according to Dublin police spokesman David Ball.

"We received a call that said a member of the party urinated on private property," Ball said. "We spoke to the golf course and they agreed to discuss this issue internally with their members."

According to the incident report released to the Trib by the Dublin police, a woman phoned the golf club, then police, at 6:53 p.m. to complain about a tall white man wearing a blue golf shirt and khaki shorts who was seen "urinating into some trees."

The police paperwork shows that a woman at the pro shop told the caller "it was Ben Roethlisberger," although officials later disputed it was Big Ben.

Roethlisberger's group played through without meeting with officers. A golf pro sent to investigate the issue never located his group, but the club issued a reminder to members to use public restrooms and not nearby flora when nature called. The entire flap was settled by 7:16 p.m. Friday, according to authorities.

Country club executives, Roethlisberger's agent Ryan Tollner and the Steelers declined to comment publicly on the latest incident tied to the quarterback.

In March, a Georgia College and State University sophomore accused him of raping her in a staff restroom of a popular Milledgeville dance club, but detectives found no evidence to arrest him.

That didn't stop National Football League Commissioner from tackling Big Ben with a conditional suspension that could last as long as six games, depending on the quarterback's conduct.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello declined to comment.
