Roethlisberger accuser told cops she was 'scared'

In an interview with authorities the woman who accused Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of attacking her said she didn't fight him off because he had a short temper and she "didn't want, obviously, him to hurt me any more than he was going to."

On Wednesday morning, months after Roethlisberger was cleared of any wrongdoing, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation released 50 DVDs from the case, including one containing the accuser’s interview with police.

The woman, who alleged the attack happened in the bathroom of a Milledgeville, Georgia night club, said she told Roethlisberger “no” several times and that she was “scared.”
