The woman accusing Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault has been questioned by officials and described as hysterical when doing so, Milledgeville, Ga., police say.

Ben's accuser - the second such claim against him in less than a year - arrived at the P.D. with three other women, according to a source at the police department.

She was extremely emotional and looked like she had been crying for hours. The woman's identity is being withheld, which is protocol with alleged sex offenses.

Ben's agent, Ryan Tollner, said Friday, "we are skeptical of motive."

Similar allegations, different name and place for Big Ben.

But the police source said for whatever it's worth, Ben's accuser "did not look like" a girl who was making it up. It will be interesting to see how this shakes out.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback has not been charged with a crime, nor was he in the incident that came to light in 2009 with Andrea McNulty, of Reno, Nev.

Just one week removed from the season finale of The Bachelor, Jake Pavelka is practicing like a madman for his Dancing With the Stars debut this month.

The first picture of the so-called star twirling around on the floor with partner Chelsie Hightower, a So You Think You Can Dance alum, has been released.

Vienna Girardi is so jealous right now...

Jake Rehearsing

Jake Pavelka prepares to extend his legs ... and reality TV career.

Premiering March 22, The Bachelor vet will take on Kate Gosselin, Shannen Doherty, Chad Ochocinco, Pamela Anderson and others on the reality TV sensation.

Think he'll also be an awkward stiff on this show?

When he's not rehearsing, Jake has been stepping out with his controversial fiancee, smiling and hitting up the hot Hollywood eateries where paparazzi camp out.

Hey, gotta bask in those 15 minutes.

Rihanna and Justin Bieber have a few things in common:

  • They are both successful musicians with legions of loyal fans
  • Their hairstyles both resemble those of a prepubescent male

Of course, one of the two actually is a prepubescent male ... well, probably. From the Justin Bieber pictures we've seen, he looks like he's 16 going on 9.

Seriously, though, check out this hair-raising comparison. Rihanna might want to rethink the fiery new look she's going for, given who it resembles.

Perennial Father of the Year candidate Michael Lohan was taken to a Massachusetts hospital after a medical scare last night, but he was later released.

The reason for his trip there is somewhat unclear.

Lohan experienced chest pains s he was preparing for a celebrity boxing match. He was examined by doctors, but didn't stay the night and was let go.

His girlfriend, Kate Major (yup, former Jon Gosselin play thing) says wants to be checked out by a cardiologist later this week back home in New York.

Who knew Michael Lohan even HAD a heart? Snap! Sorry, that was low.

Major says the father of Lindsay Lohan has been very conscious of his health, watching what he eats and exercising, but has had heart attacks before.

In all seriousness, we hope he recovers fully and swiftly.

As a result of the incident, Lohan was replaced in his celebrity boxing bout last night, and the replacement won against Todd Poulton, whoever that is.

No longer having to hide their lightning hot passion, The Bachelor stars Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi stepped out for dinner twice this week in Hollywood.

The somewhat embattled couple put on a united front - in front of the paparazzi at celebrity hot spots, natch - at Koi on Wednesday and The Palm last night.

Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka smiled and greeted photographers as they left last night, enjoying a nice dinner following their visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Asked to comment on his alleged ex's claims that he cheated on Vienna and discussed marriage with her, Pavelka shrugged his shoulders, shaking his head.

"Nah," he replied. Bold, Jake. Bold.

  • Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi Step Out

Jake Pavelka: Two dates with Vienna. One blue turtleneck.

Although Pavelka's so-called ex has given interviews on the subject anonymously, reports suggest that the woman in question is 24-year-old Tanya Douglas.

She says Jake promised her he'd come back for her, and the women on The Bachelor meant nothing to him. He says they dated but there was no overlap.

If the vicious rumors are hurting Vienna and Jake, you wouldn't know it.

Walking hand-in-hand and sporting ear-to-ear grins on both occasions this week, the newly engaged duo certainly look like they may just go the distance.

Well, maybe. This is The Bachelor. If not for Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick getting married last weekend, the show would be 0-fer. So, we ask you ...

Will Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi last?

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is being accused of sexual assault by a Georgia woman - the second to make such claims about him.

The alleged incident occurred early this morning at Capital City, a club in Milledgeville, Georgia. The alleged victim was treated at a hospital and released.

In addition to the alleged victim, witnesses are being interviewed, and one law enforcement source says they will attempt to interview Ben Roethlisberger.

The Milledgeville Police Department are looking into it and the Georgia Bureau of Investigations is also investigating the two-time Super Bowl winner.

Roethlisberger is being sued by a Reno, Nev., woman, Andrea McNulty, who claims the QB sexually assaulted her in 2008. She came forward last July.

SACKED: Big Ben is in hot water again over sexual assault allegations.

Ben fervently denied assaulting McNulty, and apparently this woman too.

Roethlisberger has already been interviewed by police, according to an update received just moments ago, but no charges have been filed against him yet.

The star's reps are denying that the football star sexually assaulted the woman last night, although said denials are short on details as of this moment.

According to, a source close to the star said only "that the allegations were untrue and the events in question did not happen."

Again, no charges have been filed. A rep from the Steelers says: "We are gathering information on this incident - until then we have no further comment."
