Trooper Wants to Keep Roethlisberger Job

Trooper Ed Joyner has appealed the decision by the Pennsylvania State Police to rescind permission for him to work as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's "assistant." The agency withdrew its approval last month as part of an ongoing investigation into Joyner's activities March 5th when Roethlisberger was accused by a 20 year old woman of sexual assault in a Georgia nightclub. The agency said the Joyner's presence at the nightclub "demeaned" the state police and was beyond the scope of work that he had been permitted to do for Roethlisberger since 2005. A state police spokesman told the Washington Observer-Reporter that Joyner cannot work for Roethlisberger while his union grievance is pending.
