Just when Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of the NFL world thought we were finally getting past the latest allegations against him, more potential news has come to the public's attention through the (GBI) Georgia Bureau of Investigation's latest documents.
Nobody wants to kick an NFL superstar while they're down, but if it's coming up in a respected document...
Of course, though much of what is in the document could be and likely is hearsay, or simply won't live-up in court, it's still very interesting.
Somewhere deep in the 572-pages of documents submitted by the GBI, lies a report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, saying that a " drunken Roethlisberger" made unwanted advances at another Milledgeville-area woman during a party at Roethlisberger's house in the area.
According to the GBI documents, Roethlisberger allegedly (there's that word again) pulled down his pants and told the woman that she could "do whatever she wants". The report also says that Roethlisberger forced his hand up the same woman's skirt just a week later.
The woman was apparently able to get away unharmed (or violated), and her family advised her not to file a formal criminal complaint.
While there's no way to tell if this story is true, or if the alleged quotes and acts are precise, it's still beyond interesting that Roethlisberger's name keeps coming up in lude acts off the football field.
What's even more interesting is if there are even more instances where these types of actions and behaviour took place, and if the Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL intend on considering all accusations against Roethlisberger in their final decision for the 2010 season.
Regardless of what happens, the evidence against Roethlisberger is staggering, and appears to have the legs to keep mounting.
