More Details Arise Around Roethlisberger’s Accuser – She’s a Wacko

andrea-mcnulty
Details broke late last night all over the web about the civil lawsuit that claims Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger sexually assaulted a female employee at Harrah’s last summer. The lawsuit reported that the incident happened a year ago, which makes it rather curious from the start.

The woman bringing forth the suit was an “executive casino host” who also worked as a concierge for the American Century Celebrity golf tournament, which Roethlisberger was involved in.

Andrea McNulty is the female bringing forth the suit. PFT.com reports that she’s a Canadian immigrant who had a visa to work at Harrah’s Casino in Lake Tahoe. The site also says that she checked into a Reno hospital back on September 25th, 2008, with major depression and anxiety. She attributes her condition to the alleged sexual assault.

PFT.com had the specifics about the complaint on the site earlier today:

McNulty alleges that, on July 10, she and Roethlisberger had a conversation about fly fishing, and that they talked about the fact that McNulty is an avid fly fisherman. (Though, on the surface, the exchange isn’t relevant, the contention — if true — shows that there was at least a minor relationship between McNulty and Roethlisberger prior to the incident.)

As to the incident itself, it allegedly occurred on Friday, July 11. McNulty claims that, at approximately 10:00 p.m. local time, Roethlisberger returned to his room with a young woman, who left roughly 20 minutes later.

McNulty says that Roethlisberger walked the woman to the elevator, and that Roethlisberger then stopped to talk to McNulty and other staff, for roughly 20 minutes. (Obviously, it’ll be critical to determine who these other staff members are, and what they have to say.)

As he was leaving, Roethlisberger allegedly told McNulty that the sound system on his television wasn’t working. She offered to have someone from engineering fix it, but Roethlisberger said he would call her about it later.

Roethlisberger allegedly called her a few minutes later, and he said that the television was still broken. She offered to have someone go to the room and fix it. He allegedly asked her to come and “take a quick look” at it.

McNulty claims that she tried to call a couple of other colleagues to handle the situation, but that she couldn’t reach anyone. She alleges that Roethlisberger called again and asked her when she was going to fix the television.

Citing a direction from management to ensure that Roethlisberger had an enjoyable trip, she decided to try to fix it herself.

McNulty claims that, when she arrived at the room, he was wearing a T-shirt and athletic shorts. She adds, for no apparent reason other than to show the clarity of her recollection, that the room was a mess.

Roethlisberger showed her the television that was malfunctioning, located in suite’s bedroom. Using the remote, she determined that there was no problem with the television or the sound system.

She claims that, as she tried to leave the room, Roethlisberger blocked her path, and that he “grabbed [her] and started to kiss her.”

She claims that she was “shocked and stunned that this previously friendly man, that appeared to be a gentleman in her previous contacts with him was suddenly preventing her from leaving, was assaulting and battering her.”

McNulty admits that she didn’t try to fight Roethlisberger, citing his size and strength. She claims that she “communicated her objection and lack of consent,” and that he nevertheless began “fondling [her] through her dress and between her legs.”

She claims that he pushed her onto the bed, and despite her alleged protests he “pulled her underpants off and proceeded to penetrate her.”

McNulty claims that she told him, “You don’t want to do this.” She also claims that she said, “Please don’t,” and that she told him she was not on any type of birth control.

She claims that he said in response, “Don’t worry, I’ll pull out,” which he ultimately did.

At that point, he allowed her to get off the bed. McNulty claims that she went to the bathroom, and “tried to pull herself together.” When she emerged, she claims that Roethlisberger asked, “There are cameras on this room, aren’t there?”

She responded by saying, “Yes, there are cameras everywhere.”

McNulty alleges that he then seem worried, and that his tone became “stern.”

“If anyone asks you, you fixed my television,” he allegedly said. “You fixed my television. Now go!”

Also today, the site has found some pics of the woman over on TMZ.com, and that site also talks about McNulty’s psychiatric problems come from an incident with a married man, not the “situation” that took place with Roethlisberger.

In any case, it looks like this is going to be wrapped up quickly as the woman seems to be a bit unreliable in this case.

    I didn’t comment on the previous entry, but I was already thinking that the timing of the suits made the allegations suspect, at least in my mind. Doesn’t pass the smell test.

    FanHouse tracked down the the pdf of the lawsuit. The details are rather gross. Even though there are currently no criminal charges, it’s hard to see Ben saving face on this one.

    Speaking of face, did you see that broad’s!!!! Is that her picture on this article?!? One word, Eek-gad! I’m just a regular Joe and I’ve pulled WAY hotter chics than that….There’s no way Ben did this…I mean look at her! She’s (ugly as) sin revisited! And if this sounds shallow, so what! It’s our culture! Dude’s with money and power don’t dog trash! Even Monica (puke in my throat) Lewinsky was better looking (and Bill Clinton had to speak with his thumb to get out of that one—remember, “I did not have sex with that woman…isn’t that right mister thumby?”)….It pisses me off now that the Steelers season or at least the beginning part of it will be mired in irrelevance due to this. Dudes, if you’re listening (or reading) and you’re powerful with money…go after OTHER famous people like yourself so that the hoe got something to lose too! Ben scored high on the wonderlic—I thought he was dating someone (relatively) famous himself? He’s not squeaky clean but he is (or seems) morally grounded with character (isn’t that the type our organization hires and keeps and pays hundreds of millions?) and he’s definitely not stupid!!! I mean, if the person in charge of this site would’ve put up a picture of a hot chic, my heart would be in my throat right now and I’d be thinking, “Say it ain’t so, Ben!” C’mon, she’s from Canada! two thirds of her brain cells are probably still thawing anyway. Ben’s no Romeo but next to a grizzly bear, he (must be) pretty damn hot! All she’s doing is coming to America, realizing the new American dream of making it big by suing the nearest celebrity and going for hers…Hey, whatever your name is, next time you hit the convenient store for smokes to continue darkening your already yellowing teeth (Oh, I’m sorry, I know youuns refer to them as “teef”), buy a lottery ticket!

    So, she says that her concern was that her employer would either not believe her or do a cover-up. Really. Why would she not have IMMEDIATELY gone to a hospital ER and had a medical team scrape some of Ben’s happy juice taken out of her? Talk about irrefutable evidence that would equate to an instant law suit paycheck-o-rama! But, she did not do this. Interesting. Once she got that lined up, the hotel resort can’t cover up jack-squat!
