Andrea McNulty, the woman accusing NFL all-star Ben Roethlisberger of sexual assault, claims she warned the football player "You don't want to do this."
According to her lawsuit, he refused to let her go.
It appears the two knew each other because Ben stayed at the hotel where she worked to play in golf tournaments in the last few years. It also appears Roethlisberger and McNulty had a sexual encounter that Ben says was consensual.
What follows is her account, not his. This was not verified by a police investigation (there was none, in fact). Be advised that this is one only side of what happened that night, and some of the details are upsetting.
An employee at the Harrah's hotel in Lake Tahoe, McNulty says that on July 11, 2008, at 10:00 p.m., she ran into Roethlisberger in the hotel hallway.
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback told her the sound on his TV wasn't working and allegedly asked her to come and "take a quick look" at it.
After she tried to call other hotel employees to fix the TV, Andrea McNulty ultimately decided to go to Ben Roethlisberger's room to fix it herself.

Once she got to the room, McNulty looked into it but claims she determined there was no problem with the TV. Then, as she tried to leave, Roethlisberger stood in her way, "grabbed [her] and started to kiss her."
McNulty claims that she was "shocked and stunned that this previously friendly man, that appeared to be a gentleman in her previous contacts with him was suddenly preventing her from leaving, was assaulting and battering her."
She says she "communicated her objection and lack of consent," but he refused to stop and began "fondling [her] through her dress and between her legs."
