The Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirms it has withdrawn its request for a DNA sample from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Bureau spokesman John Bankhead confirmed Wednesday the request had been withdrawn. Roethlisberger is accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old college student at a nightclub in Milledgeville on March 5.

Ed Garland, an attorney for Roethlisberger, told The Assocciated Press on Tuesday night that the GBI withdrew its request a week ago. Neither Garland nor Bankhead would say why.

Roethlisberger has not been charged, and Garland has disputed the assault claim and hired his own team to investigate.
