Former New Orleans Saints Safety Darren Sharper Charged With Drugging And Raping Two Women
Former New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper was charged today with drugging and raping two women, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.
Reports say that Sharper allegedly drugged and raping two women, one in October and the other last month.
In a motion filed Friday to increase his bail, prosecutors said Sharper met two women at a West Hollywood nightclub on Oct. 30, 2013, and invited them to another party.
On the way, Sharper allegedly told them he had to stop by his Los Angeles hotel room to pick something up and invited both women inside. While there, he allegedly gave each woman a shot. Each woman passed out. Victim one allegedly woke up naked hours later with Sharper sexually assaulting her.
The second woman allegedly awoke and "interrupted his actions," the motion states. The two women then left the hotel.
On Jan. 14, Sharper met two separate women at the same West Hollywood nightclub and invited them to a party. Stopping at his hotel, he allegedly invited both up to his room, offered them a shot, and each passed out.
Sharper played for the New Orleans Saints in 2009-2010 and won a Superbowl ring with the team.
