MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - The college student who accused Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her said she didn't try to fight him off because he appeared earlier in the night to have a short temper.
In her second interview with police on March 5, about 12 hours after she said the assault took place, the woman says that she figured resisting wouldn't help.
She says: "I didn't want, obviously, him to hurt me any more than he was going to."
The accuser's interview is among more than 50 audio and video recordings released Wednesday by Georgia authorities.
The woman said the quarterback sexually assaulted her during a late night of partying in Milledgeville. Prosecutors determined there wasn't enough evidence to warrant criminal charges after the investigation concluded.
The quarterback received a six-game suspension from the NFL for his behavior. Roethlisberger's attorney has denied he did anything wrong.
