Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault, stemming from an incident which allegedly occurred early Friday morning, March 5, at Buffington's, a nightclub in Milledgeville, Georgia, about 85 miles southeast of Atlanta.
Roethlisberger owns a home nearby.
According to TMZ.com, the young woman "was treated at a local hospital and released, and that "witnesses are being interviewed," and that Roethlisberger has now been interviewed by the cops. No formal charges have been filed.
"Big Ben" is also being sued by a Reno woman, Andrea McNulty, who claims he raped her in 2008.
Team Roethlisberger have denied the charges, claiming McNulty stalked the Super Bowl hero and "wanted to have [his] baby."
A rep from the Steelers told TMZ, "We are gathering information on this incident - until then we have no further comment."
