Former 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.
He met both rape accusers at the club Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood. Both alleged rapes occurred at a hotel in LA. He allegedly invited both victims to an after party but never made it because he stopped by his hotel room and allegedly drugged them.
Sharper allegedly gave 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 is suspected of raping two women in an Arizona apartment: On Nov. 20, two women and Sharper went out drinking at a nightclub in Scottsdale, Arizona. One of the women, identified as “Jane Doe D,” started acting “strangely,” leading her friends to take her home. Sharper returned to the woman’s apartment with them. A friend, identified in the record as “Jane Doe E,” put the incapacitated woman in her pajamas.
Another female roommate, who had not been at the club that night, joined Sharper and “Jane Doe E” in the living room. Sharper gave both women shots. “Jane Doe E” blacked out and didn’t regain consciousness until 8:30 a.m.
The roommate immediately began to feel “physically strange and disoriented” and went to her room to lie down. Later, she went to the bathroom and observed Sharper on top of “Jane Doe E” on the living room couch “with his buttocks exposed moving in a thrusting motion,” the court filing says. The roommate went back to her room and slept.
In the morning, “Jane Doe D” awoke naked from the waist down and had no memory of anyone removing her clothing. Later that afternoon, all three women sought medical treatment. Both Jane Doe D and Jane Doe E underwent rape exams.
The cup Sharper used to provide one of the drinks tested positive for zolpidem, or Ambien, according to the court filing.
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.
