Lawyer: Police no longer want Roethlisberger DNA
ATLANTA (AP) - March 25, 2010 -- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says it's not commenting on an attorney's statement that a request for a DNA sample from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been withdrawn.
Bureau spokesman John Bankhead said Wednesday that he could not comment on a statement by Ed Garland, an attorney for Roethlisberger who told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that the bureau withdrew its request a week ago.
Roethlisberger is accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old college student at a nightclub in Milledgeville on March 5.
Roethlisberger has not been charged, and Garland has disputed the assault claim and hired his own team to investigate.
