Okay, so former NFL All-Pro Safety Darren Sharper is now facing charges in two states, is about to be indicted in a third state and is under investigation in two more.
The second state to officially charge the former New Orleans Saints, Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers safety is Arizona. According to reports, a Tempe, Arizona (Maricopa County) Grand Jury indicted Sharper on two counts of sexual assault and three counts of administering a dangerous drug.
He's been accused of drugging then raping women in Tempe. He's been indicted in Los Angeles on similar charges and had been out on bond there until a warrant was taken for his arrest in New Orleans---again for similar charges. New Orleans officials expect to present their case for an indictment when their Grand Jury meets on Thursday. No word though when that indictment would be handed down.
And...did we mention he's being investigated in Las Vegas and Miami Beach?

The challenge now appears to be who gets Sharper in court first. He appeared in Los Angeles because they were the 1st to charge him. And he had been released on a $1 million bond as long as he stayed there. That changed after the warrant was issued in New Orleans, he's been in an L.A County jail since.
While Sharper's attorney maintains his clients innocence, the appearance here is that of a serial rapist. His attorney's in all the case say Sharper will be exonerated, though it appears the pattern in each case is frighteningly similar.
We'll keep monitoring this story because we're guessing it's nowhere near over.
