Boston-based attorney Harry Manion went on WEEI Tuesday and said that he was actually involved in another Las Vegas incident regarding Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. Jesus, when does it stop? This should be taken for what it is though, and the bottom line is that no charges were ever pursued.
“Six months ago I was retained by a client of mine and a close friend to investigate allegations against Ben Roethlisberger in a Las Vegas nightclub that were absolutely identical to this Georgia girl’s story,” Manion said.
Manion thinks/hopes that this latest Georgia incident will get Big Ben to stop being so stupid.
“Unless he’s totally brain dead — and we don’t know — he would be scared,” Manion said. “Because he has really walked a perilous line here. There’s a whole litany here, not only my experience, I have connected with several other people that have experience. And you know, there’s only so far that he said/she said will get you. There’s only so far that paying hush money will get you, if hush money is paid. And there’s only so far that, ‘Gee, we’re celebrities, we have a target on our back,’ will get you. When you see this much smoke, month after month and continuously . . . . It’s the scene that he’s gotten himself caught up with, and the belief that he can walk, and so far, so good. But it’s hurting him. He’s hurt. He has been damaged. And the next one, the wrath of God’s going to come down on him, if there is a next one.”
