When you’re a two-time Super Bowl champ and the youngest Super Bowl-winning quarterback in NFL history, you can sometimes get away with bending the rules. But this isn’t about Big Ben’s alleged sexual misconduct. In 2006 the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback was said to be near death following a motorcycle accident near downtown Pittsburgh in which he broke his nose and his upper and lower jaw and lost two teeth. He was riding without a helmet and didn’t have a valid license, only his learner’s permit.
Even more reckless riding came in July of 2009, when a Harrah’s Las Vegas hotel attendant accused Roethlisberger of crashing his motorcycle into her vagina. In response, Roethlisberger’s attorney issued the following lawyerly statement: “The fact that there is no criminal investigation speaks volumes…. Also, the part about his motorcycle crashing into her vagina seems very suspect. Very. I have seen Ben’s motorcycle. Unless this woman has an inordinately large vagina – and it would have to be HUGE – it’s just … this story is crap, okay? Ben … would never crash his motorcycle into a woman’s vagina.”
