From the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
Ben Roethlisberger’s battered public image took another hit Wednesday when the Steelers QB was lampooned on the season premiere of “South Park.”
The 28-year-old appeared, along with President Bill Clinton, Michael Jordan and David Letterman, at a meeting for sex addicts in an episode inspired by the Tiger Woods scandal. After hearing fourth-grader Butters discuss how he could not keep his mind off a certain part of the female anatomy, the animated Roethlisberger responds, “I heard that!”
Later, when asked by the sex addiction counselor how to avoid getting caught, Cartoon Ben said, “Don’t (have sex with) girls in the public bathrooms.”
A Georgia College and State University sophomore accused Roethlisberger of sexual assault following an early morning encounter in a Milledgeville, Ga., bar nearly two weeks ago. Milledgeville police and the GBI have been pursuing a second interview with the Pittsburgh quarterback but his lawyers have not yet made him available.
Authorities also hope to speak with Andrea McNulty, who accused Roethlisberger of sexual assault in a civil suit filed last year in Nevada. The quarterback denied the allegation.
“They need information from us, and frankly we need information from them, so I will make a decision on how to proceed as the need arises,” Calvin Dunlap, McNulty’s attorney, told KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh.
Roethlisberger continues to lie low, skipping offseasons workouts with his teammates and withdrawing from an upcoming celebrity pro-am golf tournament, according to TMZ.
