Saints News, 5/15/14: Darren Sharper Will Not Face Rape Charges In Miami

Pool

Miami Beach Police say the sexual assault case against former Saint Darren Sharper has been closed with no charges filed. Authorities in Miami cited a lack of evidence in Thursday's announcement. Sharper still faces rape charges in California and Arizona. He also has been under investigation in Nevada and Louisiana for other alleged sexual assaults....In other criminal news involving a different former NFL player, prosecutors in Boston say former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez murdered two innocent men who did nothing more than cross paths with the wrong person two years ago. Authorities say the two victims had a “chance encounter” with Hernandez while they all happened to be at the same bar, and Hernandez followed them out and opened fire into their vehicle, killing them both and also shooting at three others who were with the two victims.
