We’ve heard a lot of bad things about Ben Roethlisberger the past two years off the field. The first time around, he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Reno, Nevada. He faced the same type of claim this time around by a 20-year old in Georgia. However, it looks like both will end in similar ways, as ESPN is reporting that no charges will be filed against the Steelers’ QB for his latest incident, and the official word should come down on Monday.
When the claims came out last year by Andrea McNulty, the woman from Reno, most people thought that this just might be a case of woman accusing athlete for publicity/money. Though she filed a civil lawsuit against him, everything sort of went away pretty quickly, and we didn’t think much of it anymore. But when we heard about this second incident, it sort of made people a little more hesitant to decide their opinion on the whole thing.
But once again, since there are no charges being filed, it’s hard to know what to think. The only thing we pretty much know now is that Roethlisberger needs to choose his company and location a little more carefully from now on. The Steelers’ organization has already made it clear that they aren’t too happy about all this mess, so one more step in the wrong direction, and he might be looking for a new team.
Without any charges being filed for this particular case, it’ll be interesting to see what types of actions are taken by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
