Pittsburgh QB Sued For Sexual Assault

| Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersBusted!

Bad news for Steelers fans! 

Pittsburgh's star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is being sued for sexual assault by Andrea McNulty, an employee of the Atlantic City hotel, Harrah's. 

McNulty alleges that in July 2008, Roethlisberger asked her to come to his hotel room and the QB forced her to have sex with him.

Roethlisberger's attorney, David Cornwell, adamantly denies any supposed wrongdoing, saying that "Ben has never sexualy assaulted anyone….The timing of the lawsuit and the absence of a criminal complaint and a criminal investigation are the most compelling evidence of the absence of any criminal conduct.  If an investigation is commenced, Ben will cooperate fully and Ben will be fully exonerated."

We hope that McNulty is being truthful and not after his money, like Cornwall implies.  Assault is not a joke!

It is a little strange that she didn't press criminal charges and waited for a year (and a Superbowl win) before taking action.

Apparently, the football player faces charges of one civil count of assault, one civil count of sexual assault and battery, one civil count of false imprisonment, one civil count of false pretenses, one civil count of fraud, and one civil count of intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Yikes!

    …yuck.

    Some chick said the same thing about Jerome Bettis a few years back and she was only looking for a payout TOO!!! That's all this girl wants. Puh-lease…don't be naive to think she wants anything but moolah



  3. 3

    I bet he's innocent…this woman is probably after his money



  4. 4

    He doesn't even look like a quarterback. Dan Marino was a classic quarterback. Brett Favre comes to mind. Troy Aikman. They are all athletic handsome guys.

    But this guy looks like an ugly linebacker. Like "Refrigerator Perry"

    …yeah I'm sure, the rich and famous Steeler's QB assaulted and raped a hotel employee, cuz he has such a hard time getting laid. If that's true, I'm sorry to the victim…. but something tells me she was pretty damn willing at the time. If you were actually raped why would you wait an entire year to say anything?



  6. 6

    BS



  7. 7

    after a year? yeah, right



  8. 8

    no one should discount this woman's claims until this is taken to trial- i am so SICK of people taking the men's side without knowing what happened or the facts . . .
    it must have been absolutely terrifying for her, so she should be given a ton of support as she goes through this difficult time. . .



  9. 9

    She works in Nevada, not Atlantic City.

    And this is BS. She waited one year, plus an historic, world record super bowl victory to come forward.

    Gold.Digger.

    That's gotta be the worst photo of Ben ever!

    Re: black__eyed_fat_loser – great screen name and avatar!



  12. 12

    He had a superbowl win from the 2005 season already. Get your facts straight.



  13. 13

    she's an asshole. Y would she wait a year when I'm sure she's had sex with several people between now and then. If I were him I'd sue her for wasting my time



  14. 14

    Re: Perez is a wanker. – He has a super bowl ring! WTF do you have dumbass?! Clearly you don't know dick about football OR hot men…



  15. 15

    I heard he is not the only one she is sueing for this.



  16. 16

    cute guy either way.



  17. 17

    I don't believe this woman for one second. Even after a year, if this story was true she should have gone to the police instead of filing a civil suit asking for money. Not to mention the fact that some things have come to light making her sound a little nuts.

    What is sad is that situations like this make it difficult for women who are actually sexually assaulted to be taken seriously.

    First of all, I can totally buy this story because Big Ben is a perv. Last semester at Miami Univerity (the college Ben went to) Ben was visiting for the night and headed to his old favorite bars in Oxford. I vividly remember hearing he was in town so my girls and I all went to the bar where he was at. When we got there, we saw this huge crowd in the corner of the bar and it was Ben surrounded by his posse of bodyguards with girls crowded all around. Thats when we saw Big Ben handpicking girls ages 18-21 out of the crowd to be brought into his circle for some "small talk". He later left that bar with 3 young girls at his beck and call. Ill leave it to your imagination as to what happened when they left. Overall, my image of Big Ben is some old dude hitting on skanky college girls.

    Assault is hilarious, as long as it's Perez getting punched!



  20. 20

    A) Bad pic of him. B) It was at LAKE TAHOE - next to RENO - not Atlantic City, not Vegas. C) This chick is under psychiatric care for being duped by the WIFE of the married man she was slutting around with. D) Not a SINGLE person, that in her suit claims to have been standing around has corroborated her story. No one. There are ZERO other names as witnesses in the filing of the suit, and the hotel would have those cameras where she'd be seen freaking out crying running out of the room - but nope - nothing. Common sense.

    Re: miamiu – sounds like your alittle bitter that he didn't pick you!!!!



  22. 22

    Re: miamiu – if ben can go into any bar and get girls why would he have to force someone to have sex with him? i'm from pittsburgh and love my steelers but even i will admit i think ben can be a pig..but this sounds like bull shit to me



  23. 23

    I live in Pittsburgh and hung out with Ben right after his first Super Bowl win. Is he a TOTAL deuschebag that NO ONE in the whole city likes? Absolutely. Do I think he's guilty of rape? No way. Most of the people in this city hate him, women included, but he's still our quarterback and we love our Steelers. Trust me when I say he has NO PROBLEM getting women or getting laid around here. I can't wait to see how quickly this case gets tossed out of court.



  24. 24

    He was dating Missy Peregrym at the time this "supposed" assault happened. Doesn't sound like something Ben would do. Keep in mind this is a guy who each year donates money and police dogs to various police forces around the country.



  25. 25

    being a steelers fan…. this better not be true. or is this just coming up now because the steelers won the superbowl and she just figured out a decent way to get a few bucks? i would think so.



  26. 26

    i can't stand this dude! Gooooo Eagles!



  27. 27

    Chicks making accusations like this should either have to prove them or be arrested themselves. I'm sure a Super Bowl winning qb has to assault girls to get laid. This is just another shakedown and there should be consequences if the girl is found to be lying



  28. 28

    Re: Perez is a wanker. – Have you ever watched him play?Granted ,he looks like a slob but he could rip off Marios head and throw it 100 yards down the field!
    With regards to Rape,that shits no laughing matter but waiting a year to press charges is too suspious.

  29. kmere says – reply to this

    just wanted to let you know your facts are a little off it's the Harrah's in Lake Tahoe and this happened during the Celebrity Golf Game that's there every year. I hate to say it but women get away with lying about stuff like this way too much. My girls and I go up there every year and trust me with amount of easy hoe's that through themselves at the players they dont need to force someone to have sex with them. Just sayin……



  30. 30

    He will pull a Kobe and get off on the charges. But it makes me sad that there are some women who lie, and that makes is tough for the ones who are telling the truth about assault. If she is telling the truth shame on Ben for being an ass. If she is lying, she is doing damage to all men and women who have faced violence.



  31. 31

    Re: miamiu So that proves that he forcibly raped someone? Because he has his pick of girls - if anything, it proves the opposite.



  32. 32

    Re: RedWingsFan – Sorry. I confess, I don't know much about football. I love watching basketball. And when I can't avoid watching football, I concentrate on quarterbacks and how nice their tight pants fit their hard behinds. Will you please forgive me for showing my football ignorance?



  33. 33

    Re: RedWingsFan – For the first part - you made me laugh (even if you are a Wings fan). Gotta love people who comment on "looks" while he sits with two bowl rings in 4 seasons, and the highest stats on passes after contact. Too bad there's not an offensive line in Pittsburgh.



  34. 34

    time to lay off of the Philly Cheese Steaks !



  35. 35

    Re: Perez is a wanker. – Not a big deal at all!Your correct in his apperance but i wish the F'm Detroit Lions had a QB half as talented as Big Ben!



  36. 36

    Re: Perez is a wanker. – Thats also cool that you dig watching quaterbacks,even though your not a football fan.
    I sometimes watch womens tennis just to hear the ladies scream :)



  37. 37

    I'd do him



  38. 38

    Hahahaha, no no. Don't see this being true.



  39. 39

    Re: Penguins Fan!! Wild all the way!!!



  40. 40

    I think this is a bunch of BS. Who waits one year to sue for something that to get proof of you need to go to authorites RIGHT AWAY? and Ben's lawyer is right, what a year to wait. Ben was the highest paid nfl player of 2008 and his team won the super bowl



  41. 41

    Re: Penguins Fan!! – Thanks alot ,your pretty cool to!!Just think-2 months until Hockey season!!!!!!WooHoo!!!



  42. 42

    well im from pittsburgh and i dont like him

    i rip on him all the time. as i do with crosby

    im not taking either side until whatever the court says. intiol then ill make jokes about it. ha



  43. 43

    I dream of Big Ben sexually assaulting me…mmmm…



  44. 44

    Despite my avatar, I'm a baseball girl and a Pirates fan. I just had trouble loading the Pirates logo and so I settled for a Steeler helmet. Anyway, Ben…..you shouldn't be sleeping with strange women. Bad boy.



  45. 45

    BULL!!!!



  46. 46

    Whatever. Her legs were spread so fair appart that she was touching both walls.



  47. 47

    McNutly is a real nut case. She pretended she had a solider boyfriend that died in combat. She's a proven mental case. Any snake lawyer that stands to make a million or so would take the case. She waited a year to report the rape, she never called the cops….she's a nut! She's a disgrace to woman, everywhere.



  48. 48

    this is so over money… ben has a heart of black n gold and he would never do anything like that…everyone that knows him says the same… and i have faith in my favorite quarterback….



  49. 49

    there are no criminal charges filed and she waited a whole year….this biotch is looking for money…obviously



  50. 50

    I also live in Pittsburgh-this town thinks this guy is a saint. He is cocky, arrogant, and in my opinion, not the best QB. His head got so big in the third season (after their first Superbowl win with him) that it showed on the field (thanks for that SHIT year "big" Ben).But I will have to agree with some others, I'm sure this guy has no problem getting ass. Even ugly-ass rock stars (Gene Simmons, Lemmy from Motorhead anyone??) get laid. But I honestly don't think this guy had to force someone to have sex with him. Come on, he said he was gonna pull out?? Puhlease, I would think celebrities, athletes, etc would be wrapped in multiple condoms just to make sure they don't get a lot of lawsuits for child support.

    Okay, I'm not a big fan of the one-night-stand, BUT I thought the English To sex version of "Do you want to come up to my room?" Meant "would you like to get down and dirty with me?" I'm not taking rape lightly, and if she really was raped, my prayers go out to her. But as my mother used to say, "Never purposefully put yourself in a bad situation." If she wasn't raped, then shame on her because every time one of these "allegations" come out a year later- suing for money with no evidence- it makes all allegations of rape that much more difficult to convict. Look what happened to the Duke players. Someone cried rape, these boys were CRUCIFIED. Then, the entire team voluntarily gave samples of their DNA. Out of the THREE seperate semen samples from the alleged victims underwhere, none belonged to ANY of the Duke players. The prosecuter in this case went NUTS against these boys. He is no longer a prosecutor because he drummed up false evidence. Election year- go figure. These are the kind of women that are a drain on society and a stone around the ankles of real rape victims everywhere.
