Big Ben’s Accuser Allegedly Bragged About Sex

From the beginning, this whole Ben Roethlisberger sexual assault lawsuit thing has been a little … strange. There are no criminal charges involved, the accuser’s mental health issues have been made unusually public, and let’s not even get into the whole ESPN embargo thing, which served to blow the whole story out of proportion.

Ben Roethlisberger Andrea McNulty

Regardless of the case’s actual merits, the accuser herself, Andrea McNulty, has probably done more harm than good over the past month by chatting up her local newspaper to garner sympathy for her cause. Judges tend to frown on people openly discussing their cases in the media, and if McNulty is truly looking for justice, she should be doing everything in her power to get it - including shutting the hell up until she has her day in court.

Antoine Walker Arrested, Still Makes AM Tee Time

Antoine Walker’s desperate, mercurial run from justice ended late last night at a Lake Tahoe casino, where he was placed in handcuffs by Nevada Sheriff’s deputies and hauled to the hoosegow. And really, who among us California residents cannot relate? Sadly, whatever happens in Lake Tahoe never seems to stay in Lake Tahoe. Mr. Walker, you may recall, had an outstanding warrant out for a little matter of over $800,000 owed to three Las Vegas casinos for bad checks. So when he showed up in Tahoe this week for the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, they pretty much had a jail cell cleaned and reserved in his name.

Antoine Walker

Walker showed up at Harrah’s Tahoe last night to play a little of the poker and the blackjack, and a “Harrah’s employee” spotted him and made his presence known to a couple of deputies who were there making the rounds. Even though Walker didn’t owe the money to Harrah’s, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from living in Tahoe for the past 10 years, it’s that Nevada casinos stick together. Anyway, Walker dropped a little more¬†money than he had probably anticipated.
