The Georgia Bureau of Investigation withdrew its request for a DNA sample from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Kelly Naqi of ESPN is reporting.
There is no word on why the request was withdrawn, and the Bureau’s public information officer declined to comment on what it means regarding the status of the investigation.
Carl Prine of the Tribune-Review previously reported that attorney Ed Garland agreed to arrange for Roethlisberger to provide a DNA sample.
It is still not known whether charges will be brought against Roethlisberger, who was accused of sexual assault by a 20-year-old college student who says she met him at a bar on the night of March 4.
Lee Parks, an attorney for the accuser, told ESPN, “We’re not commenting on the investigation. It’s not our place to do that.”
Everyone who was with Roethlisberger has reportedly been interviewed by investigators. Roethlisberger himself has not.
