MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A video clip taken at the nightclub in Georgia where Ben Roethlisberger was accused of sexually assaulting a college student shows the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback talking and laughing with girls.
The shaky 49-second video, shot by a member of Roethlisberger's entourage, shows the quarterback, wearing a black Nike baseball cap and black T-shirt with a devil's face on it.
Most of what Roethlisberger is saying is drowned out by loud music in the club, but he can be heard asking a girl what her drink tastes like.
He repeatedly gives high fives to people off camera. When the friend shooting the video asks him to say hi, he strikes a pose, punches his fist twice in the air and flashes a huge grin at the camera.
Prosecutors determined there wasn't enough evidence to warrant criminal charges after the investigation concluded, though the NFL gave Roethlisberger a six-game suspension.
