Default Ben will be fined. Driver fined also.

Citations Issued In Big Ben's Accident

Pittsburgh Police issued Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger a pair of citations following a motorcycle accident on June 12.

The city's Collision Investigation Unit concluded its probe of the accident involving Roethlisberger and Martha Fleishman, 62, of Squirrel Hill with each receiving citations.

Roethlisberger was cited for failure to drive in his class as well as driving without a license. Both are summary offenses. His citations totalled $281.50 and $106.50, respectively.

Collision Investigator Dan Connolly said that Roethlisberger's citation for not wearing a helmet was issued because motorcyclists are required to wear a helmet for two years unless they take a motorcycle safety course.

Fleishman was cited for failure to yield to oncoming traffic. Her citation totalled $106.50.

The investigation found no mechanical issues with Roethlisberger's 2005 Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle nor Fleishman's Chrysler New Yorker.

Roethlisberger was found to be driving without a valid permit or license. He did, however, possess valid registration and inspections on his motorcycle.

Investigators also said that Roethlisberger was driving 35 miles per hour in the 35 miles per hour zone at the time of the crash.

It's unknown at this point whether either driver will appeal their citations.

Roethlisberger was hospitalized with multiple injuries sustained in the accident last Monday.

Seems like he got off pretty easy for the most part. No community service hours or license suspension.

There is alot of talk about Ben on t he threads. what about Holmes? I dunno about the rest of ya, but for 26 years i've been waiting for another super bowl to come to pittsburgh and now that we got one we're getting alot of bad luck. alot of these NFL players think they can just do and say what ever they want. Holmes needs kicked off the team. We don't need a T.O in Pittsburgh, and i'm pretty sure that everyone can aggree with me on that. There is no room for error for this team this year. after what they prooved last year, every nfl team is going to be looking at us to take the title from. It will not be hard to trash us up and down the feild if we have a team that isn't playing right, and doesn't have their head in the game. God smiled down upon the Steelers 7 months ago. Let's hope he is still doing it.

I think maybe they figured giving him community hours would cause more of a zoo than needed. Ben picking up trash on the side of the highways would probably stop traffic. I guess he could always speak to local high school kids on the safety of wearing helmets when riding bikes.

give him one season before you get your panties in a bunch. We don't even know if he is guilty of this second charge.

Well I'm not one for defending a team cancer like T.O. But in his defense. When has T.O. ever been arrested for anything? I can never think of anything. So at least Owens has never been arrested and has been very productive in his NFL career. Where Holmes hasn't even stepped on the field yet and has been arrested twice. I don't know of the details regarding this latest Holmes arrest.

Owens is at least smart enough to avoid putting himself in situations to get arrested. Owens only problems have been he doesn't know when to shut his mouth and he destroys his teams chemistry. Hardly criminal in my mind.

his "crime" didnt warrant community service, or more than i fine, but i do think ben will speak to kids on his own without being forced by the state. he seems to be the type of guy who wants to stand good in his community and do the right thing.
