The only teammate that was with Ben Roethlisberger the night of the incident in Georgia was OL buddy Willie Colon. Today in the NY Daily News, Gary Myers writes that Colon claims he saw nothing strange about that night out on the town, and his QB is innocent:
It is believed Colon is the only Steeler who was with Roethlisberger last Thursday night when they stopped by several spots in Milledgeville, Ga., including Capital City, a popular club for college students and where the assault is alleged to have taken place.
Joe Linta, Colon’s agent, said yesterday that Colon was on the dance floor much of the evening and was not aware there was an issue until Roethlisberger’s group was detained on the way out. Linta said Colon and Roethlisberger are “pretty good friends.” It’s likely Colon will be on the list of eight people who will be questioned by the Milledgeville police or the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.
Regarding the alleged incident last week, Linta said Colon had no knowledge of anything “alleged or otherwise and his name need not be mentioned anymore. He didn’t know anything, didn’t see anything. He’s of no use or help to anybody.”
