Darnell Dockett tweeted a Darren Sharper rape joke

Darnell-Dockett-CardinalsDarnell Dockett tweets more obnoxious stuff than any player in the NFL, so it should come as no surprise that the Arizona Cardinals defensive end could not resist mentioning Darren Sharper. As most of you know, Sharper has been accused of drugging and raping several women in several different states. Dockett must not find that to be all that serious.

Last week, Dockett claimed that his friend told him he saw a girl “so bad” he wished he “had that DS for her.” In other words, he was saying he should have sexually assaulted her.

Dockett was supposedly passing along a comment his friend made, but the fact that he chose to share it with his 160,000 followers makes him just as much of an idiot. Sharper, who allegedly admitted to witnesses that he raped women, is facing a lot of disturbing accusations. You would hope his former co-workers would know enough not to crack jokes about it.

Darren Sharper allegedly admitted to witnesses that he raped women

Darren SharperDarren Sharper and a second rape suspect allegedly admitted to other witnesses that they raped two women in New Orleans in September, according to a report.

Sharper is a suspect in at least eight sexual assault cases over five states. He and a man named Erik Nunez are suspected of sexually assaulting two women in New Orleans last year.

TMZ got a hold of the application for an arrest warrant for Nunez, and in that application, officers allege that a witness says Sharper and Nunez admitted to having non-consensual sex with the women.

“Through further investigation by the detectives it was learned that Nunez and Sharper admitted to other known witnesses that he and Sharper had vaginal and/or oral sex with victims #1 and #2 without their knowledge or permission.”

Though they are currently being investigated, neither Sharper nor Nunez have been charged with crimes.

Darren Sharper surrenders after arrest warrant issued for alleged rapes

Darren SharperDarren Sharper turned himself in to police in Los Angeles on Thursday night after a warrant was issued for his arrest in New Orleans. In addition to to the charges Sharper faces for allegedly drugging and raping two women in LA, he will likely also face charges from two sexual assault incidents that took place in New Orleans last year.

Sharper had been free on bail after being charged in LA at the time the warrant was issued. A warrant was also issued for 26-year-old Eric Nunez, who has been described as an acquaintance of Sharper. Detectives say two women were allegedly assaulted by Sharper on the night of Sept. 23 and claim they were also raped by Nunez.

“New information uncovered also indicates that Nunez allegedly raped both women at the same location,” New Orleans police spokeswoman Remi Braden said.

Police also said in a statement that an aggravated rape conviction carries a potential life sentence without parole.

Sharper has been named as a suspect in at least eight sexual assault cases. He was reportedly suspected of seven rapes and 11 druggings in four different states before we learned about another sexual battery accusation in Miami, meaning there are ongoing investigations in at least five states.

When you look at the entire picture, Sharper has been accused of being a serial rapist.

Darren Sharper rape accuser says she woke up with him having sex with her without condom

Darren SharperEarlier on Thursday we passed along a report from NBC Miami saying that Darren Sharper was being investigated for an alleged sexual battery in Miami Beach. This investigation is separate from the 11 druggings and seven rapes in four states he’s already suspected of. At first the details of the alleged Miami Beach incident were not available, but now they are.

TMZ Sports got a hold of the police report and says the alleged victim claims she filed the police report last month after seeing news of Sharper’s alleged rapes on TV. This woman claims she and friends met Sharper at a nightclub in Miami and went back to his condo.

The woman claims she was drunk and went into his bedroom. Witnesses supposedly told police they heard the alleged victim saying “no no I don’t want to” to Sharper, so they entered the room in an attempt to take her away. She apparently said she just wanted to sleep.

When the woman woke up in the morning, she says Sharper was having sex with her without a condom.

Though the woman went to a doctor, she did not go to police until last month after seeing Sharper’s face on TV in association with the rape cases.

Report: Darren Sharper involved in sexual battery investigation in Miami

Darren SharperThe hits just seem to keep on coming for former NFL safety Darren Sharper, who is currently under investigation for several sexual assault cases. Sharper was formally charged with drugging and raping two women last week, but there is plenty of reason to believe his troubles won’t end there.

In addition to the seven rapes and 11 druggings Sharper has been named as a suspect in, he has also reportedly been named in another sexual battery investigation that stems from a report filed in Miami last month. The details of that investigation were recently publicized, and you can read them here.

According to NBC Miami, Sharper was also involved in an investigation stemming from another incident in Miami Beach in 2011. The accusations made by the alleged victims in that case were similar to those that have been made against Sharper in the other sexual assault cases. Two women who were visiting Miami from Georgia on spring break claimed they fell asleep in Sharper’s condo and woke up to find either Sharper or his brother “behaving inappropriately and exposing himself.” The case was closed because no evidence of sexual battery was found.

The latest case Sharper has reportedly been named in means his name is now associated with sexual assault cases in five different US states. The former New Orleans Saint’s reputation is getting worse by the day.

Darren Sharper a serial rapist? Suspected of seven rapes, 11 druggings

Darren SharperDarren Sharper was formally charged with raping and drugging two women on Friday in a Los Angeles court. That may only be the start of it. The two charges that were filed are only a portion of a complaint that names Sharper as a suspect in seven rapes and 11 acts of drugging someone in four different states.

We already knew that Sharper had been accused of sexual assault in Louisiana in addition to the charges he faces stemming from two alleged encounters with women in LA. The filing from Friday also revealed the analysis from the rape kit used in the Louisiana case and noted that the alleged victim reported she blacked out after taking a drink from Sharper.

Sharper claims to have a video that proves sex with the woman from New Orleans was consensual. His California attorney, Blair Berk, expressed optimism that the former New Orleans Saints safety’s name will be cleared.

“We look forward to the true facts being revealed in this case and we are hopeful that Mr. Sharper will be fully exonerated before this case is concluded,” Berk said, per Naomi Martin of The Times-Picayune.

While it should be noted that Sharper is innocent until proven guilty, the similarity between all the cases is disturbing. In addition to the two women from LA and one from New Orleans, Sharper has also been accused of raping two women at his Las Vegas hotel suite and two other women in an Arizona apartment. The Times-Picayune highlights some of the details of the accusations.

In each case, the alleged victims recall being given a drink by Sharper and finding themselves incapacitated in some way shortly thereafter. The cups Sharper allegedly gave the women in the LA incidents tested positive for morphine and zolpidem, which are ingredients in the sleep medication Ambien.

One thing’s for sure: Sharper’s attorneys have a lot of work to do in the coming months.

Darren Sharper charged with drugging and raping two women

Darren SharperFormer New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper was formally charged with drugging and raping two women in a Los Angeles County court on Friday. Sharper was arrested on suspicion of rape last month and was released after posting $200,000 bond.

According to the district attorney’s office, the 38-year-old has been accused of drugging and assaulting one woman in October and another in January. Both instances occurred at a hotel in LA, and Sharper is said to have given the women a shot of alcohol after inviting them to his room. The complaint alleges he gave the women morphine and zolpidem, which are found in the sleep medication Ambien.

One woman claims she woke up naked with Sharper sexually assaulting her on Oct. 30, hours after she drank the shot of alcohol. Another woman who was invited to his hotel room that same night said she woke up and “interrupted (Sharper’s) actions.”

On Jan. 14, Sharper allegedly met two women at the same nightclub where the previous incident took place. He is also said to have offered them shots and one woman believed she had been sexually assaulted when she woke up the next day.

Sharper, who won a super bowl with the Saints in 2009, is also being investigated for a sexual assault that was filed in Louisiana. He claims to have a video proving the sex with the woman involved in that case was consensual. The bad news continues to pile up for the five-time Pro Bowler.
