Ben Roethlisberger’s attorneys deny that he attacked a 20-year-old college student in a nightclub south of Atlanta March 5, but Milledgeville police have requested a DNA sample from the Super Bowl champ.

Milledgeville police Chief Woodrow Blue announced the latest development in the widely watched case at a news conference Monday afternoon at the Milledgeville City Hall. He was accompanied by Tom Davis, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent in charge of the case.

Blue said that thus far the Steelers’ Quarterback’s legal team has been cooperative, and he has no reason to believe they wouldn’t comply with the DNA request.
