MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in Georgia will not charge Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, and Findlay native, Ben Roethlisberger after a 20-year-old college student said he sexually assaulted her.
District Attorney Fred Bright made the announcement Monday.
The student had told police that Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her last month at a nightclub in the central Georgia college town of Milledgeville.
Bright says questions still persist about what happened between Roethlisberger and the student inside a bathroom at the club.
Roethlisberger , who is 28, owns a home about 30 miles north of Milledgeville on Lake Oconee.
He also is being sued by a woman who claims he raped her in 2008 at a hotel and casino in Lake Tahoe, an allegation he strongly denies.
