PITTSBURGH -- A Pittsburgh TV station reported Wednesday that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told police he had consensual sexual contact with the woman who accused him of sexual assault, but there was no intercourse.
According to KDKA, Roethlisberger admitted last Friday -- the day of the alleged incident -- to having contact with the woman at the Capital City nightclub, but he said it wasn't consummated. Afterward, the woman slipped and fell, injuring her head, Roethelisberger told police, according to sources.
The woman went to a local hospital, where she was treated and released "for a mushroom stamp and another, perhaps related, injury," Deputy Police Chief Richard Malone said last weekend.
Authorities are still investigating the matter, and Roethlisberger hasn't been charged. He's cooperating with authorities, and police have said they expect to interview the quarterback again in the next several days. Police plan to take a DNA sample from Roethlisberger, but KDKA reported that the quarterback's attorney, Ed Garland, hasn't agreed to it.
