MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - The young woman who accused Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault says she tried to get away from the Pittsburgh quarterback and told him "no, this is not OK."
In police documents released Thursday, the woman says Roethlisberger told her and her friends to take numerous shots of alcohol before one of his bodyguards took her to a hallway in the nightclub. She says Roethlisberger came into the hallway and after she tried to get away from him, Roethlisberger followed her into a bathroom.
This week, prosecutors said no charges would be filed against Roethlisberger. The prosecutor said the woman had asked him not to pursue the case and that the woman's accusations could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
Roethlisberger has denied the accusations.
