A 20-year-old woman from Georgia alleged that the NFL player sexually assaulted her at a nightclub in Milledgeville early Friday, according to the Sun Times.

Apparently the quarterback is cooperating with police, and has already been interviewed by authorities in Georgia. He has not been charged with a crime at this point in the investigation. The victim, a student at Georgia College & State University, was reportedly taken to a local hospital, treated, and released, according to TMZ.

Ben's agent said last night: "We have spoken to law enforcement. Based on information currently available, an allegation was made against Ben, which appeared to be dismissed after a preliminary investigation last night. Obviously, given the prior accusation against Ben, we are skeptical of motive, but we will continue to cooperate with everyone involved."

Roethlisberger has also been accused of sexual assaulting a hostess at a resort during a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, Nevada in 2008. The woman, Andrea McNulty, did not go to the police, but is instead suing the athlete. The case is currently on hold, pending the consideration of a change of venue motion.
