The Georgia Bureau of Investigation just released a whole bunch of stuff from that Ben Roethlisberger investigation. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Roethlisberger was handed a 6-game suspension for an alleged sexual assault in a Milledgeville college bar last March. Photographs and video are already surfacing on the web, which is great because it means that I don’t have to read anything.
In addition to the party pictures, the GBI also released photos taken of the “Employees Only” bathroom in which Roethlisberger’s encounter with the woman occurred. Two images record a crime scene technician using a cotton swab to remove some unknown substance from a grimy bathroom wall. Other photos show Capital City’s VIP room, where Roethlisberger reportedly purchased a round of shots for women and announced, “All my bitches, take some shots.” –TSG [first link].
The 572-page report on the investigation was released in April. Roethlisberger has been allowed to rejoin the Pittsburgh Steelers for team activities during his suspension (and why not…it’s not like he’s going to rape them). Of course, we should probably point out that Roethlisberger was never charged for the assault. Nor was he charged with being a misogynist douchebag, which at the time of this writing is still legal in all 50 states.
