Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has the right to remain silent. And he’s exercising that right fully and completely.
Milledgeville, Georgia police chief Woodrow Blue has told TMZ that, while the investigation regarding the March 4 claim of sexual assault against Roethlisberger is complete, they’d still like to talk to the accused. But Ben ain’t talking.
And so prosecutors will have to decide whether to prosecute Roethlisberger without any further input beyond whatever he said during a brief interview at the scene of the alleged incident.
Meanwhile, the Court of Public Opinion will likely continue to suspect that Ben’s decision not to talk flows from an effort to conceal the truth.
