AP Report: Big Ben to Be Cited

by Ben Goldfarb on June 20, 2006

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have to pay $388 in fines for driving a motorcycle without a Pennsylvania motorcycle license and not wearing a helmet. Even though Pennsylvania law allows riders to go helmetless, that law applies to properly licensed motorcycle operators who have been licensed for at least two years or who have completed an accredited safety course. Ben did not have a valid motorcycle operator’s permit and he had not taken the course.

For more details, check out the excellent, comprehensive coverage on ESPN.com, which includes a collection of reports as well as audio and video clips.
