Claims made against Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger by a college student on Monday, March 8, 2010 have been denied by Reothlisberger’s attorney Ed Garland. The 20-year-old claimed that the two-time Super Bowl winner sexually assaulted her at a Milledgeville, Georgia nightclub while out barhopping with friends. Roethlisberger has not yet been charged, but is under scrutiny due to previous allegations of rape.
