Though it’s not known whether authorities in Georgia will charge Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger with sexual assault, the investigation is moving closer to completion.
The folks at TMZ report that all of the folks who were with Roethlisberger on the evening of March 4 have been interviewed.
Of course, one key figure in the investigation has not been interviewed. Roethlisberger himself.
Though the quarterback’s agent vowed that there would be full cooperation with authorities after the alleged incident occurred, lawyer Ed Garland has not yet made his client available. We considered last week the possible reasons for the decision not to allow Roethlisberger to be interviewed. Regardless of whether those reasons or other reasons apply, the fact remains that Roethlisberger has not yet consented to talk to authorities.
Whether he ever does remains to be seen.
