When you look into the eyes of former NFL star Darren Sharper, one isn’t reminded of Hall Of Fame worthy highlights, instead a vicious man who has (allegedly) raped numerous women peers back at you.
An L.A. County Superior Court judge denied Sharper bond today after his legal team requested he be released on house arrest for his arrest stemming from two separate incidents on October 30 January 14 and in L.A. when he allegedly drugged two women (on two separate occasions) with Ambien and sexually assaulted them after meeting them at a West Hollywood nightclub. According to reports, one woman woke up while she was being raped and “interrupted his actions.”
A Tempe jury also indicted Sharper today, on two more counts of sexual assault and three counts of administering dangerous drugs relating to an incident alleged to have happened on November 21.

Sharper is being investigated in four other states: California, Louisiana, Nevada and Florida. He is being labeled a serial rapist.
