Roethlisberger claims innocence

An attorney for Pittsburgh Steeler's quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said that he is innocent of being accused of sexual assault that allegedly happened at a Georgia nightclub over the weekend.

A 20-year-old student at Georgia College and State University alleges that she was sexually assaulted by Roethlisberger early Friday, though no charges have been filed yet, according to Espn.

Police say that they are preforming an investigation into the matter, and they will release all of the facts once the process is complete, according to USA Today.

"The facts show that there was no criminal activity. No sexual assault occurred," attorney Ed Garland said on Monday, according to Espn.

Roethlisberger is also being sued by a woman accusing him of rape stemming from an alleged incident at Lake Tahoe in 2008, which he strongly denies, according to USA Today.
