    Police to address Roethlisberger allegations today 4PM

    Police to address Roethlisberger allegations today
    Monday, March 08, 2010
    By Dan Majors, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. -- Authorities have called a press conference for 4 p.m. today to address their investigation into sexual assault allegations against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

    Meanwhile, Mr. Roethlisberger has hired an attorney who worked on a previous criminal case involving a high-profile football player.

    Milledgeville Police and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation have been looking into a report by a 20-year-old student at Georgia College & State University that Mr. Roethlisberger assaulted her early Friday at a nightclub.

    Milledgeville Police Chief Woodrow Blue is scheduled to address reporters.

    Mr. Roethlisberger has now retained Atlanta criminal defense attorney Edward T. M. Garland and Donald F. Samuel to represent him. Mr. Garland represented Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who was accused in 2000 of a double murder in Atlanta. Mr. Lewis pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice and testified against two co-defendants who were later acquitted.

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league has no comment on the case but is following developments.

    More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    I don't like the sound of this. I don't think you call a presser to say that nothing happened and no charges will be laid.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I think this will be bad news.

    Glad to be wrong. Looks like there was no reason for the PC.

    They do with high profile cases like this. Sometimes they just say after investigating the complaint they don't have enough evidence so they will not be pressing charges.

    I forget who that occurred for in the past, but I know it's happened (Or I could just be mis-remembering)...

    It's big news. There will be a presser no matter what.

    Comment from Art Rooney II:

    "All of us in the Steelers family are concerned about the recent incident involving Ben Roethlisberger in Georgia," Rooney said. "We cannot comment on any of the specifics until law enforcement's investigation is concluded. Certainly, we will continue to closely monitor the situation."

    I'd say they just wanted to let all the press know there's no new news currently in hopes they get some relief from the constant questions....maybe???

    They did say they're going to interview Ben again in a few days.

    That's why it's frustrating... we also have to consider the local politics involved. What if the locals are tired of the underage drinking and public intoxication. DA's can drag these things along because it's a chance for national exposure.

    Ha!, a reporter asked Chief Blue if the (under drinking aged) female accuser had in fact been given an alcohol test at the hospital and he said he had no idea! What a joke.
