Cop posed for photos with Roethlisberger before investigating complaint

As it turns out, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was palling around in Milledgeville, Georgia not only with two off-duty cops from Pennsylvania but also with an on-duty officer who would later investigating the charge of sexual assault.

According to the Milledgeville Union-Recorder, Sgt. Jerry Blash posed for photos with Roethlisberger earlier in the evening, both alone and with a group of other officers.

“The photographs did not and have not affected the investigation at all,” Police Chief Woodrow Blue told the Union-Recorder.

This subplot probably would be far less meaningful if I hadn’t seen parts of Superbad the other night on FX.  And it’s a shame that the whole criminal complaint thing happened; otherwise, Ben might have eventually gotten a chance to fire bullets at a burning cruiser.

    Riiiiiight…..and then they let Ben run the siren and gave him one of those little “jr. police officer” badges.

    As a recovering alcoholic myself, I have no doubt that, after paying this girl off to drop the charges, he’ll be drunk and back at the college bars within a year. Like during the NFL bye week I predict. It’s just how it happens.

    And people wonder why idiots like Ben feel entitled to do the kind of crap they do. The cop considers it more important to get a photo op with Big Douchebag than to investigate the rape charge against him.
    Shame on that cop.

  21. Shawn says: Mar 12, 2010 9:52 AM

    I believe that Ben is innocent and that this 20 year old bitch needs to learn not to drag her teeth when she gives head. Way to Go Ben beat that razor toothed bitch into the dirt! I know I slaped a girl upside the head cause she drug her teeth and that wench deserved it.

    WTF are police officers posing in photographs with people for? Where I live, Police officers can’t do this, like, at all, regardless of who they are posing with. I don’t exactly live in a high crime area, either.

    GoBrowns -
    Here are the steps:
    1) Pay off the victim(s)
    2) Enter rehab
    3) Find Jesus (in tearful public speech)
    4) Cut PSA spot addressing issue of the party you most offended
    He’ll then spend his time drinking in bars that cater to upscale / VIP clientele. That will ensure him the security and privacy that will allow him to keep up the charade. That will last as long as his career / money will allow.
    As for being an alcoholic, we’ll only find that out after he’s done playing. All in all, he doesn’t exactly seem like the kind of guy that lives until 90.
    Think about it, no one said anything about Iverson’s drinking problems until his scoring average dipped under 15 PPG. As long as stars produce and make people money, everyone pretends there is no problem. And when they get older, no one cares so they fall off a cliff (Corey Haim).

    If Rottenberger gets off, I challenge any of you Ben supporters to walk up to him and ask for his autograph. He’ll tell you to eff off like he always does. Ben doesn’t care about you or anyone else. He’s a selfish pig and has no business in a Steelers uniform.
    NFL commissioner is a racist. If this was Buress, Pacman or Vick, they would have been suspended already. The NFL sucks!!

    In case you didn’t notice the officer AND the cheif of police are both black you ignorant prick. Rapistberger HAHA thats a new one….
    I love the hate from fans thinking them posting critisism of Ben will somehow:
    A) convince others, poilice, attorneys and a judge that Ben is a bad person and is completely guilty when they have no idea nor do they care to know the facts of the case.
    B) affect his play on the field so that he wont comeback stronger than ever and win his 3rd Super Bowl trophy in 6 years.
    Damn it feels good to be a steelers fan

  33. smuthe-eagle says: Mar 12, 2010 10:05 AM

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the picture from the night of the alleged assault the one with him wearing the “Drink like a Cahmpion” T-shirt? If so, he had a beard in that photo and is clean shaven just hours before with the officer? That’s one fast growing beard.

    ——————-
    Easy answers to both. The 2 PA cops were off duty. They are friends/body guards of his.
    He hired a lawyer so quickly because he is being investigated for a crime that if he is even charged, he will get suspended. If his lawyer can get the investigation thrown out, he gets away clean.

    Huh?? What’s the time frame in Boston to hire a lawyer after being accused of a sexual assault?
    Geez, is everyone in Boston this freakin’ stupid?

    How does that change the fact that PIG BEN is a Fat Headed Sexual Predator who can’t pick up real women so he rapes them!
    Please file charges against one of the most overated and luckiest QB’s in the league so he can be suspended and go back to the hole of ohio or georgia until he get’s his chance to go to JAIL!

    The 2 cops are his friends. They were there to celebrate his birthday. He owns a home in GA. He hired a lawyer because that’s what people do when they are being Accused of a crime. Now that your questions have been answered, you can go back to class. It’s almost recess time!

I especially love it when people from cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh make fun of peoples education. Since we all know how educated and classy those cities are right now.
    Now onto Rothlisburger. I do not know the facts, but it is pretty damning that this has happened twice in less than 2 years. Add that to the other dumb moves he has made and his intelligence must be brought into question.

  48. Deb says: Mar 12, 2010 10:25 AM

    Oh for heaven’s sake! You all rag on Florio about his journalistic skill, but you have nooooo interest in or respect for the facts anyway.
    1. Florio is not a journalist. He is a football blogger. He picks up news and rumors from other sources, blends in his opinion, and posts it for your entertainment. If you want journalism, go to a news site.
    2. Officer Blash posed hours before the alleged assault. He couldn’t have known the famous QB visiting his town would later be under investigation.
    3. Officer Blash DID NOT investigate the complaint. She approached him on the street, told him she’d been assaulted, and provided minimal details. He arranged for her to be escorted to the hospital AND DISPATCHED A DETECTIVE who conducted the investigation. That’s what it says in the police report, which is available online. The guy did his job.

    If he’s guilty I hope he goes to jail. If he is innocent I hope he gets cleared of all charges….

    These women crying “wolf” are giving real women a bad name! No one mentioned that she was 20 and drunk. Last I checked you had to be 21.
    Next, as he was surrounded by 3 cops, sounds funny that none of them saw this so called assult or recall him going into bathroom.
    This chick got caught up in the hype, partied, told one of her chicken head friends, then the light bulb went off, “Hey I think he assulted me and I need a scum lawyer that is also looking for a paycheck to help me!”

    ———————————————————–
    I find it immature, and it is premature to call him Rapistberger, when there is no proof as of yet, and no charges, as of yet. Most of these posters have nothing intelligent to say, so they get on here and make up stupid names for him, most of which have been said 1,000 times. So they aren’t even original.
    It is entirely possible that Ben is innocent of these crimes. It is obvious that McNulty is nuts, but her claim makes Ben a target to anyone he has sexual contact with. I’m sure he’s been with 100′s of women since McNulty’s accusation hit the news. It was only a matter of time before someone else pulled the same card. I know that it’s a reckless way to live, but that doesn’t mean that he is guilty of sexual assault. If he is proven guilty, I absolutely agree that he needs to go to jail. But I am going to back him until then.

    Check Ben’s bounce-back record after off-the-field incidents.
    Motorcycle accident after winning the superbowl in 05- failed to make the playoffs.
    Accusations in Nevada following the 2008 superbowl season- failed to make the playoffs.
    I’m not going to predict the steelers miss the playoffs in 2010, although I would love to see it happen. But if I was a steelers fan, I wouldn’t book my tickets to the superbowl quite yet.

    @Chapnasty2 …
    Why do we automatically assume Roethlisberger is innocent after two accusation? For someone so concerned with preserving the ideals of our nation, I’m surprised you don’t know our Constitution declares Roethlisberger innocent until proved otherwise.
    You’ve made it ABUNDANTLY clear that your hatred of all things Steeler is more important than any facts in this case, but the filings in the McNulty case make clear that it’s an attempt to extort money. Thus far we know little about this case other than she left the club without seeking help and he stayed there partying. Odd behavior for a man who’d just assaulted someone. The police said it was not rape. She hired a personal injury attorney within 48 hours. I can tell you that last item is NOT typical of rape or assault victims.
    But by all means … carry on with your lynching.

I have to agree people like her do give women a bad name. Still love my Steelers either way. To the Browns and Ravens fans……WTF…he guys/gals got a lot of room to be talking……

    @ Chapnasty2
    “I find it odd, that people still seem to think he is automatically innocent even though he has put himself in this situation twice.”
    Put himself in this situation twice? Please. Have you read anything on the McNutty bitch that accused him of rape? I think you should. Is an unmarried man like Ben supposed to not have sex for the rest of his life? Just because you can’t get laid doesn’t mean others can’t. Is Ben bringing a girl home to his house gonna alleviate accusations from money hungry bitches making false accusations? The first “alleged” incident was at a hotel. I believe a lot of concencual sex occur in hotels (insert your own Mom joke here). Go get a q-tip and clean the shit out of your ears so you can hear the facts from both sides before rushing to judgement.
    Why is everyone presuming guilt at this point? Because of a motorcycle accident and a prior false accusation with no criminal charges? Show me some facts people.
    Does Ben need to be smarter? Hell yes. But should he become a hermit? Hell no.
    Side note for all of you “Baby Jesus” fans, Ben’s Wonderlick score was higher than Tebow’s.

    1. Florio is not a journalist. He is a football blogger. He picks up news and rumors from other sources, blends in his opinion, and posts it for your entertainment. If you want journalism, go to a news site.
    2. Officer Blash posed hours before the alleged assault. He couldn’t have known the famous QB visiting his town would later be under investigation.
    3. Officer Blash DID NOT investigate the complaint. She approached him on the street, told him she’d been assaulted, and provided minimal details. He arranged for her to be escorted to the hospital AND DISPATCHED A DETECTIVE who conducted the investigation. That’s what it says in the police report, which is available online. The guy did his job.

    @ Ravenator – how did it feel to watch the Steelers win two Super Bowls recently? Must’ve made you real mad.
    And last time I checked the Steelers have a two time super bowl champ/mvp in Ward, a game-winning td receiver in Santonio (who consistently smokes Baltimore btw), a former champ in Randle El, a 2nd year receiver with lots of promise in Mike Wallace, and one of the best tight ends in the league in HEEEEAAAth Miller.
    Ravens got Boldin, a nice pick up, but benefitted from having a hall of fame qb in Warner and received one-on-one coverage with Larry Fitz on the other side. Flacco is no Kurt Warner LOL. He can’t even be effective with an awesome running game. Mason is old and a poor man’s Hines Ward, Stallworth has been passed around the league like a hot potato, Washington catches a 5 yard pass and does a little fairy dance, and Todd Heap is old and useless.
    This is probably too much information for your pea brain, typical Ravens’ fan.

    —————————————–
    No, you’re not a Raven, Bengal, or Brown. You’re just an idiot who doesn’t even know Ben hasn’t been accused of two rapes. The police in Georgia said there was no rape.
    If you’d read the court documents filed in Nevada, you’d find witnesses saying McNulty bragged about having sex with Ben and wanting to see him again. Then she got into financial trouble a year later and sued for $3 million. The cops never investigated because they said no crime was ever reported and there was no evidence a crime had occurred.
    This girl in Georgia had a sexual encounter (not intercourse) with him in a bar, told police it was an assault (not rape), and within 48 hours had hired a personal injury attorney. I’ve know a lot of rape/assault victims. They don’t hire personal injury attorneys. Most don’t go to the police. I’ve never known ONE who wanted money.
    Those are the only details anyone knows at present, but you’ve convicted him of rape and told the rest of us to STFU.

    Roethlisberger has a strange fetish for cops. He wears their hats during postgame press conferences, he buys various police departments dogs, and he employs cops as bodyguards. I guess if someone has a history of having “sexual contact” with intoxicated women in public places, surrounding yourself with a well-paid “party” police is a pretty good idea. I’m betting Roethlisberger’s recent restroom sexcapades isn’t an isolated incident. I don’t think Your Boy Ben is as stupid as you may think. However, anyone who needs bodyguards while in public is obviously way too important, and he/she should keep themselves at home.

  123. Deb says: Mar 14, 2010 2:40 PM

    Goodness, what are you doing? You’ve suddenly taken to posting the same bizarre messages on every board.
    Many people give to police charities. My mom gives to police charities. Just because I caution never to give up your rights doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the valuable role of police officers in society. Twisting Ben’s charitable contributions into something negative is just wrong.
    Apparently Ben was once threatened at gunpoint in public, so I’m sure that’s why he travels with security. Most celebrities travel with security because we live in a world filled with hyper-obsessed fans. Google: John Lennon, Rebecca Schaeffer, Selena, Monica Seles, Jill Dando, Theresa Saldana, Andrea Evans, David Letterman. The list goes on.
    Many people frequent bars, pick up strangers, and engage in indiscriminate sex. To me, that lifestyle is sad and empty. But it’s not criminal.
