Ben Roethlisberger Named in Public Urination Complaint



According to the report, a woman named Nan Fowler phoned the pro shop at the Country Club at Muirfield Village around 6:53 PM and complained that a white, tall male -- sporting a blue golf shirt and khaki shorts -- was "urinating into some trees."

The report states that Nan was informed by the woman at the pro shop that the person who fit that description was Big Ben. Nan then called police and told them that the NFL star was peeing in public.

Cops eventually arrived to the scene and spoke with country club management -- and later determined that no crime had been committed. Sources connected to the investigation tell us cops never interacted with Roethlisberger -- because Ben was "long gone" by the time authorities had arrived.

TMZ spoke with reps at Muirfield who tell us, "We had a full slate of golfers that day ... it may have been anyone."
If people got arrested for urinating in the woods while golfing, I'm going to guesstimate that approximately 99% of golfers would have been nabbed for this crime in their lifetime. The difference is that Joe Sixpack taking a leak in the woods while golfing is not news. However, when Ben Roethlisberger does it, you see the result.

For what it's worth, Team Roethlisberger has no comment, nor do I expect one anytime soon.

And yes, for the record, I would consider an entire post about a guy urinating as a Sign of the Apocalypse.

Update: No charges will be pressed by the woman, confirms Carl Prine of the Trib.

Throw me in jail then, too.

This is a joke.

Oh yeah, I also love the " It may have been anyone"........

But I have been told I'm wrong to assume Mike Vick of wrong doing for scuffling with a know felon ( violation of parole?) just moments before he was shot at Vick's b-day bash.........

It seriously could have been anyone. The woman's only description was "tall, white male in a blue golf shirt" and people immediately say "IT MUST HAVE BEEN BEN ROETHLISBERGER!" That's ridiculous. No matter who did it, it's ridiculous that it's a story.

People really need to get off of Ben's case I don't think he has proven his innocence but he needs to be given a chance. I just wrote about this in my blog a few weeks ago: http://goosespenaltybox.blogspot.com/2010/06/big-ben-theory.html.

I'm not trying to condone Ben's other assholish behavior, but in this case, who doesn't take a wiz on the golf course when they think nobody's looking?

And who's the guy that actually makes a big deal out of it when somebody does it?

Poor Ben. I bet the lady will also swear that Ben said "Excuse me while I whip this out".

Hopefully, the Muirfield police department will swab the trees for six hours only for their lab to later determine there isn't enough urine to provide DNA evidence.

Then the Ohio DA can hold a press conference announcing this fact after publicly lecturing Ben on the evils of public urination.

He should have just waited to urinate in the shower. Its all pipes.

I think this woman Nan posts here from time to time under the alias "Corey".

Corey said...

what did i ever do to you steve?

Steve said...

Just messing around. C'mon, you know you hate Ben.

I suggest Ben picks up the fine for any teammate who scores a TD at $h!tstains Stadium this season and uses the old Goal Post/ Fire Hydrant Celebration.

@Burress;

I love it. He should do it for both Ohio professional sports franchises.
