Yea, I'm the idiot..that's me..

As the investigation continues into the alleged sexual assault here of a college student by Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, new evidence is emerging about the evening and the “Benapalooza” entourage of beefy buddies who filmed their time partying together. Carl Cansino, attorney for Capital City nightclub where the incident occurred early March 5, said Wednesday the footage is hardly “Girls Gone Wild.” It was shot by an unnamed member of the quarterback’s entourage in the nightclub’s VIP room. It shows the 20 year-old Georgia College & State University sophomore with Roethlisberger around the time of the incident, he said. Cansino said he wished the nightclub could provide security video recordings, but the system it uses recorded over the footage, and agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation were unable to retrieve any evidence from recordings. No cameras were trained on the staff restroom near a dingy storage corridor where the assault allegedly occurred, he said. “The DVD system overwrote itself,” Cansino said. “Had it just been deleted, they might have been able to save some of it.”Cansino said the video made by Roethlisberger’s buddies is the sort of tape anyone would make during a birthday celebration, which is what members of the group told investigators they were doing in this tiny Georgia town. –Pittsburgh Tribune Review

Small town police clearly botched up the whole investigation..and why hasn’t Big Ben been interviewed yet? The commissioner should suspend Big Ben solely for wasting tax dollars on this stupid investigation. -TO
