Boston Lawyer Harry Manion Clarifies Statements About Ben Roethlisberger Ben Roethlisberger avoided charges in Georgia on Monday, but a Boston lawyer opened up a whole new can of worms Tuesday.

The lawyer, Harry Manion, called into WEEI's Dennis and Callahan Show and said that he was hired to investigate allegations that the quarterback was involved in a situation "in a Las Vegas nightclub that [was] absolutely identical to this Georgia girl's story."

"There is a history here — and I can't say any further because we never proceeded with it — but there is a history here that is just super troubling," Manion, a partner at Cooley Manion Jones LLP, told WEEI.

Later in the day, however, Manion clarified his statements, saying that "the only similarities between the two situations … is that they both involve a young woman and a nightclub."

"Mr. Manion did not mean to express or imply that he has any information that Mr. Roethlisberger engaged in any illegal behavior," the statement said. "All other information, apart from Mr. Manion being retained, is confidential."

The added allegations come just one day after the district attorney in Milledgeville, Ga., determined that there would be no charges filed against Roethlisberger for sexual assault.

"The prosecutor's decision not to bring charges, I know without a doubt, is the right conclusion," Roethlisberger said on Monday. "I don't intend to discuss any details related to the events of Georgia. I'm happy to put this behind me and move forward."
