Key Ben Roethlisberger Security Tape Vanishes

by at . Comments

Did Big Ben just evade a key legal tackle?

Security camera footage from the night Pittsburgh Steelers star Ben Roethlisberger is accused of sexually assaulting a Georgia college girl is mysteriously gone.

The disappearance of security footage at Capital City nightclub was reported by the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, which claims parts of the tape have been erased.

A lawyer for the club produced this explanation: "The DVD system overwrote itself ... Had it just been deleted, they might have been able to save some of it."

That contradicts what owner Rocky Duncan said in the wake of the alleged incident, not only claiming he had video, but describing the footage in great detail.

Duncan said that footage showed the 20-year-old Ben Roethlisberger accuser hanging out before the alleged incident and police speaking with Ben afterward.

Duncan was quick to point out, however, that the video did not show Ben and his accuser going towards the bathroom where the alleged incident took place.

The lawyer for the club later said cops watched the video with Rocky "shortly" after the alleged incident, but they did not take the video with them at that time.

When police returned to collect the tape at a later point, that's when they noticed the footage had been erased. This whole thing is as confusing as it is shady.

No charges have been filed against Ben in this case or the previous one in which he was accused of sexually assaulting a Nevada woman, Andrea McNulty.

HAHAHAHAHa you have the video as key??? This is a joke because not only did the video point completely on the other side of the bar and only the opening, the manager said they wouldnt be able to see them because of the over crowded night. You need to do a little more reasearch

"the video did not show Ben and his accuser going towards the bathroom where the alleged incident took place"... that being the case, why would Ben make the tape disappear? it would have vindicated him. she said it happened in the bathroom, and if at no point did he ever go in the bathroom then that would mean it's a bald faced lie by this club ho.

As a sports guru, I can tell you all that this guy is a total pud. He has some sort of fake "ghetto" accent that seems to show up when he is doing interviews, however, he switches that accent to normal when he is making public statements or public apologies (kind of like Justin Timberfake circa 2001). The women in this case are obviously ignorant club ho's but that still doesn't give him the right to manhandle them in a bathroom. I hope that karma manhandles him in a bathroom while in prison.
