ESPN Former NFL star defensive back Darren Sharper has been arrested on suspicion of rape and is being investigated in connection with three separate sexual assaults. Sharper was arrested and booked Friday and released on $200,000 bail just before midnight, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. He faces a Feb. 14 court appearance. LAPD says it is investigating Sharper in connection with two sexual assaults that occurred in the West Los Angeles area, one in October and another earlier this month. New Orleans Police Department spokeswoman Remi Braden said Saturday in a statement that NOPD is also investigating an allegation of sexual assault filed against Sharper on Sept. 24. A five-time Pro Bowler, Sharper has worked as an analyst for the NFL Network since retiring in 2010. The NFL Network announced in a statement Saturday that Sharper has been suspended without pay, effective immediately.”Darren has been suspended without pay until further notice, effective immediately,” said Alex Riethmiller, a spokesman for NFL Network. Sharper, 38, played 14 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints, recording 63 career interceptions. He was part of the NFL 2000’s All-Decade Team.
I have caught some flack in the past for saying that most of the women who drum up charges like this on a professional athletes are gold diggers looking for a payday, and in most cases, I have turned out to be correct. I am not going there in this case, Darren Sharper looks to be a serial rapist, one that needs to be taken off of the streets and left to rot in a cell. At first I thought, maybe a girl got drunk, a drunk Sharper took advantage of her, and when she realized what she had done the next morning she felt like a slut and charged him with sexual assault. Not in this case, it seems that Sharper is a sexual predator, and that he has done this to multiple women in multiple states. It still baffles me how a good looking man like Darren Sharper, who is a wealthy professional athlete, and who is gainfully employed at the NFL network could commit a crime as serious as rape. Darren Sharper is a rich, good looking, young guy. Attractive women are going to give it up to Sharper, in fact I’m sure they flock to Sharper and he should be able to choose the pick of the litter, there is absolutely no reason for him to sexually assault a woman. Clearly Sharper is some sort of sexual deviant, he needs to be locked up, because it seems that he is a serial rapist who will strike again if he is a free man. Throw away the key.
