 The AP is just reporting a Georgia officer who took the first report from the women who accused Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault has resigned. Milledeville police Chief Woodrow Blue on Friday confirmed that Sgt. Jerry Blash resigned Wednesday. That's one day before the Georgia Bureau of Investigation made public all documents related to its investigation of a 20-year-old women claim that Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her. Prosecuters say they're not charging Roethlisberger. Blash is the only officer who interviewed the quarterback. He acknowledged in an interview with with investigators that he made some derogatory comments about the alleged victim to other officers. Multiple calls to a number listed for Blash rang unanswered.
