If you are going to hire a super attorney then that means you're worried...this is not a good sign for Roethlisberger...

ATLANTA -- Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has hired a high-profile Atlanta defense attorney as police investigate a Georgia woman's claim he sexually assaulted her.

Roethlisberger has not been charged. Police say a 20-year-old college student reported the assault after an encounter with Roethlisberger at a nightclub in central Georgia.
Police in Milledgeville plan a 4 p.m. ET news conference Monday afternoon on the case.
Meanwhile, the assistant for attorney Ed Garland confirms that he is representing Roethlisberger. Garland previously represented rapper T.I. on a federal weapons charge and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis in a murder case.
More serious charges against Lewis were dropped and he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor obstruction of justice charge.
The Steelers, who had previously withheld comment as they gathered information, released a statement Monday.
"All of us in the Steelers family are concerned about the recent incident involving Ben Roethlisberger in Georgia," team president Art Rooney II said in a news release. "We cannot comment on any of the specifics until law enforcement's investigation is concluded. Certainly, we will continue to closely monitor the situation."
