Trooper Tom Joyner, one of the bodyguards for Ben Roethlisberger, is no longer permitted to work for the quarterback, as per a release from the state police today:
"The reasons indicated for the rescission are that Trooper Joyner violated the stipulations of the approved application; that he exceeded the scope of the employment description listed; and that in doing so he is alleged to have demeaned the image of the Department," the release said.
State police will continue to investigate the trooper's actions during the Georgia incident. "Should violations of regulations have occurred, no matter the location of this incident, appropriate actions will be taken," the release said.
So if you're scoring at home, that's a Milledgeville PD officer who lost his job, a Pennsylvania state trooper who lost his supplementary job and is under investigation, and a quarterback who is suspended for anywhere from four to six games and may well end up in football Siberia tomorrow.
