Posted on

According to reports from TMZ, Darren Sharper has been charged with two counts of rape by use of drugs, four counts of furnishing a controlled substance, and one count of possession of a controlled substance.

The accusers claim they met Sharper at a Los Angeles nightclub and he invited them to another party. They stopped by Sharper's hotel room for a drink, which was allegedly spiked with Ambien — a prescription sleeping aid. The accusers claim the crime happened while they were passed out.

Sharper was arrested on January, 17 and released on $200,000 bail. According to ESPN, prosecutors will seek bail to be raised to $10 million for the several accusations he is currently facing. According to TMZ Sharper has been accused of rape in three other states — Arizona, Nevada and Louisiana — in addition to the incident in Los Angeles.

During the 2000s, Darren Sharper — who used to date actress Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Wade's fiancé — was one of the most intimidating players in the NFL. The hard-hitting 6-time All-Pro safety had a Hall of Fame-caliber career while playing for the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints.
