A month after reports first surfaced that Ben Roethlisberger bodyguard Anthony Barravecchio could soon be losing his job as a police officer in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania, a new report says it will be a few more months before Barravecchio knows his fate.
Coraopolis solicitor Richard Start says he has finished reviewing the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s 500-page file on the night Roethlisberger was accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Milledgeville, but that he needs to continue investigating what Barravecchio did that night.
“I spoke without having read the file,” Start said, apparently referring to the earlier indications that Barravecchio could be fired soon. “Once I read the file, the time parameters I spoke of were not realistic.”
Now Barravecchio won’t know for “months as opposed to weeks” if he’s going to be fired as a police officer, Start says.
Although witnesses said Barravecchio escorted the woman who later accused Roethlisberger of rape into a restroom, Barravecchio’s attorney denies that.
