Report: Darren Sharper arrested on suspicion of rape

Darren SharperFormer five-time Pro Bowl defensive back Darren Sharper was arrested in Los Angeles on Friday on suspicion of rape, according to a report.

TMZ Sports says Sharper, who won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 season, was booked at a jail in LA and released on $200,000 bail.

Police reportedly say Sharper was linked to two alleged sexual assaults — one from Oct. 2013 and the other this month. TMZ later reported that the incidents both took place at Los Angeles hotels and involve two separate women.

Sharper had 63 interceptions during his 14-year career and returned 11 for touchdowns. The two-time All-Pro safety is currently an analyst for NFL Network.

WDSU also reports that Sharper is being investigated for an allegation of sexual assault in Louisiana.
