Retired NFL Safety & NFL Network analyst Darren Sharper arrested for rape.......

Anyone else hear about this ??? I watch NFL AM a lot and NFL Total Access so ive been wondering about his recent absence over the last few weeks but chalked it off to off-season vacation time . I cant believe this story . Not only has he been charged in LA California , but he also being investigated in Arizona , Louisiana , and Nevada & each of those cases have the same exact identical MO as the California rapes. Apparently the crime lab has found Sharpers DNA as well when they swabbed the women for DNA while conducting sexual assault exams . Crazy , here is the article I read..... Former NFL player Darren Sharper has been charged with drugging and raping two women in California and also is suspected of doing the same to other women in Arizona, Nevada and Louisiana, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office. Sharper, once a star safety with the New Orleans Saints, is suspected of raping a total of seven women in four states, all after offering them shots laced with drugs, according to a Los Angeles police officer investigating the case. So far he faces criminal charges only in Los Angeles — two counts of rape by use of drugs, four counts of furnishing illegal drugs and one count of illegal drug possession, all felonies. The drugs allegedly involved were zolpidem, a sedative, and morphine, a narcotic painkiller – both delivered by shot glass in separate incidents on Oct. 30 and Jan. 14. WELLS REPORT: Reveals findings on Dolphins case Sharper's attorney couldn't be reached for comment. Sharper, 38, was arrested by Los Angeles police on Jan. 17 and released on $200,000 bond. If convicted, he faces more than 30 years in state prison. The district attorney said it wants to raise his bail to $10 million because Sharper also is suspected of raping women in New Orleans, Arizona and Las Vegas since September. His arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 20. The district attorney alleges that Sharper met two women at a nightclub in West Hollywood on Oct. 30 and invited them to another party. On the way, Sharper invited them up to his hotel room and gave each woman a shot glass. Each woman passed out.

"The second woman allegedly woke up and interrupted his actions, according to the district attorney. On Jan. 14, Sharper met two other women at the same West Hollywood nightclub and invited them to a party. He then invited them up to his room again and offered them a shot. Both passed out, and when they woke up hours later on Jan. 15, one woman believed she had been sexually assaulted, according to the district attorney. Both left the hotel and sought medical treatment. To persuade the judge to increase Sharper's bail, the district attorney submitted a declaration from Los Angeles police Det. John Macchiarella, who is investigating the case. In his declaration, he detailed police reports about Sharper in other states: --On Sept. 22, a woman met Sharper at an event for Saints players and then accompanied him to a bar, where Sharper provided her with a beverage. The woman's next memory is waking up at 10 a.m. the next day with Sharper on top of her in a sexual assault. The New Orleans police received a DNA analysis that showed Sharper's DNA was present on the swab taken from the woman. --On Jan. 15, a day after one of the alleged incidents in Los Angeles, Sharper met two women and a man at a Las Vegas club. Sharper invited them to a party at his hotel room and gave them all shots, according to the report. All three then "blacked out." One woman woke up next to Sharper in bed and proceeded to use the restroom, where she saw injuries on her face for which she could not account. Sharper asked her how she was feeling and then offered another beverage to help her feel better. "The next thing she remembered was Defendant Sharper sexually assaulting her," the report states. The other woman woke up alone on the couch in the hotel room and "immediately felt as thought she had been sexually assaulted." The man who accompanied the two women said his next memory after taking the shot provided by Sharper was sitting alone at the bar inside the hotel. He had no memory of how he arrived there, the report states. --On Nov. 20, two women went with Sharper to a nightclub in Scottsdale, Ariz., and then returned to the women's apartment. Sharper provided shots. One woman woke up the next morning naked from the waist down with no memory of how her clothing was removed. A third woman who lived at the apartment woke up to see Sharper on top of a second woman with his buttocks exposed moving in a thrusting motion. Two of the women underwent sexual assault examinations. Subsequent testing by the crime lab revealed the presence of zolpidem. The cases in Arizona, Las Vegas and New Orleans remain under investigation. The 38-year-old Sharper spent 14 years in the NFL. He played for three teams, the Green Bay Packers, the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints. He was a five-time Pro-Bowl selection and was on the Saints' Super Bowl championship team in 2009. Following his second year with the Saints in 2010, Sharper announced his retirement. Sharper, who lives in Miami, Fla., had been working as a consultant for the NFL Network, which suspended him indefinitely without pay after his arrest.
