Andrea McNulty Says Hotel Boss Threatened Her, Downplayed Ben Roethlisberger Assault

by at . Comments

The woman accusing Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault claims the football star forced himself on her at the hotel where she worked and that despite her repeated protestations and refusals, Roethlisberger would not stop.

He claims it was consensual and that the lack of criminal complaint filed by Andrea McNulty - the incident happened a year ago - proves his innocence.

In response, McNulty said she told the head of security at the hotel about the alleged sexual assault the day after it happened, but he completely blew her off and even threatened her job if she made this into a bigger issue.

The plantiff claims in her lawsuit that Guy Hyder - the chief of security at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe, Nev. - told her she was "over-reacting" and that "most girls would feel lucky to have sex with someone like Ben Roethlisberger."

Andrea McNulty claims Hyder told her John Koster - the hotel president - will "personally fire you for starting rumors about Roethlisberger's personal life."

Hyder told McNulty, according to legal papers, that Koster would be impressed by the encounter, allegedly saying "Koster would love you even more if he knew about this ... Koster would suck his d!ck if Roethlisberger let him."

In the lawsuit, Andrea McNulty claims she assumed the incident would be investigated by security, but Hyder "did not do his job of investigating."

As for why she didn't tell the cops, McNulty claims she was "afraid of the consequences of going to police authorities since it was obvious to her that Harrah's and it's [sic] personnel ... would side with and support Ben Roethlisberger."

She also claims Harrah's employees broke into her home and ripped files off of her computer, presumably for the purpose of defending themselves in a lawsuit.

Several months later, after Andrea McNulty claims she sought psychological treatment because of the encounter, she claims she had a conversation with Hyder.

The accuser says she told Guy Hyder that she had been hospitalized specifically because of the Roethlisberger incident. Hyder allegedly replied, "I figured that was what was wrong, but I thought it was just like a date rape thing."

Andrea McNulty claims her bosses told her she was on thin ice at work. She is seeking $380,000 in medical fees plus an unspecified amount in punitive damages.
