I Think Big Ben Is In Trouble

This is off topic, but I have the feeling this could turn into a really, really big story soon...

Just saw this link coolaid provided regarding Ben Roethlisberger's version of the events that led to the sexual assault allegation earlier this week, and it includes this bizarre tidbit:

As the investigation regarding the sexual assault allegations against Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger continues, KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh reports that Roethlisberger has conceded having "sexual contact" with the woman who claims sexual assault, but that there was no intercourse. 

The admission apparently came during an interview of Roethlisberger conducted at the scene.

Per the report, Roethlisberger claims that the woman fell and injured her head after the incident.  She then went to a hospital and alleged that she was sexually assaulted.


Ben's story is, apparently, they were making out, and then after making out, she fell and hit her head, hurt herself so bad she had to go to the hospital, and then when she was at the hospital, she made up a story saying that she had been sexually assaulted.

Does that really pass the smell test?
