MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (CBS/AP) Ben Roethlisberger has eluded the grasp of an accuser in an incident last month.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback will not be charged related to an alleged sexual assault at an Atlanta area night club, a Georgia district attorney announced Monday.
District Attorney Fred Bright said questions still persist about what happened March 5 between Roethlisberger and a 20-year-old college student in a bathroom at the Captial City nightclub, but that he believed prosecutors would not be able to bring a case that would convince a jury "beyond a reasonable doubt."
Bright also emphasized that the accuser did not want the case prosecuted.
The woman claimed the two-time Super Bowl winner assaulted her at the nightspot in Milledgeville, Ga., south of Atlanta. She reported the assault to a patrol officer outside the club and was immediately taken to a local hospital for an examination, according to the Milledgeville Union-Recorder.
Roethlisberger has, through his attorneys, denied the woman's accusation.
In the summer of 2009 another woman came forward alleging that Roethlisberger assaulted her in his Lake Tahoe, Nev. hotel room in 2008. He has denied the allegations and is fighting the suit.
