Police: Roethlisberger investigation goes to DA

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. -- Milledgeville police say they have finished their investigation into a 20-year-old college student's claim that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger sexually assaulted her.

Chief Woodrow Blue said in a statement Wednesday that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Milledgeville police handed the investigation report and witness statements to local District Attorney Fred Bright on Tuesday evening.

A woman who answered the phone at Bright's office Wednesday said the DA had just received the documents and would not comment before reading them.

Roethlisberger is accused of sexually assaulting the student at a nightclub in Milledgeville on March 5. Roethlisberger has not been charged and his lawyer disputes the accusation.
