The folk at TheSmokingGun.com have found in the 527 pages released by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation a summary of the March 13, 2010 interview of Steelers right tackle Willie Colon.
Colon explained that Roethlisberger, Colon, and several others (including Steelers teammates Darnell Stapleton and Ramon Foster) had traveled to Roethlisberger’s home in the Lake Oconee area to celebrate the quarterback’s birthday. The group had stayed at Roethlisberger’s residence all week.
As to the evening of March 4, Colon said that, at a bar called The Brick, the alleged victim “repeatedly attempted to get Roethlisberger’s attention which included pinching him.” She told Colon that her nickname is “DTF” and when he asked her what that means she said “down to f–k.”
Colon became frustrated by the fact that girls were trying to talk to Roethlisberger “through” him, and he eventually concluded that it was “gay.”
Later, at the nightclub where the alleged incident occurred, Colon initially decided that the VIP room where Roethlisberger’s group had congregated was a “sausage party,” because there were too many men and not enough women. Eventually, went back to the VIP room and saw a small crowd of women around Roethlisberger. Colon explained that the group often had to deal with “jealous boyfriends,” so they kept men out of the VIP room.
The portion of Colon’s statement appearing at TheSmokingGun.com doesn’t address whether he witnessed any of the events surrounding the alleged incident. Colon’s agent, Joe Linta, previously said that “Willie, although he was in the building, had no knowledge of the
incident and his name should not be brought up about this incident again.”
Well, so much for that.
And there goes any appetite I might ever have for sausage. Not that there’s anything wrong with sausage.
