Saints News, 2/19/14: Arizona Police Report Details New Darren Sharper Rape Allegations

This is just the latest police report from now a third U.S. state alleging former Saints safety Darren Sharper drugged and sexually assaulted two women. Just last week, he had to appear in Los Angeles court to face similar charges and has been ordered to remain there until his Feb. 20 arraignment. Sharper was also alleged to have done the same to a New Orleans woman last year. In addition, we learned last week that he could face the same charges in Nevada. What the hell is wrong with this guy!?

Darren Sharper, WTF?

Darren Sharper rape accusations by two Arizona women detailed in Tempe Police report |
Darren Sharper drugged three women at a Tempe, Ariz., apartment with what the victims believed were shots of vodka laced with drugs and then sexually assaulted two of them, according to a police report that offers more details on the allegations. The report cites a police officer who was told one of the women "believed Sharper had 'slipped her a Molly' in a previous incident," in reference to an ecstasy-like drug often used in date-rape cases. The police document, first reported by WWL-TV Tuesday, repeats allegations first revealed last week in documents filed Los Angeles, where Sharper was charged with raping two women in separate incidents. In all, Sharper is accused of drugging 11 women and raping seven of them in four states, including a New Orleans woman who accused Sharper of raping her in a Warehouse District apartment Sept. 23. The Tempe police report narrates the initial investigation of an alleged assault Nov. 20, after Sharper went out drinking with at least two women in Scottsdale. The report said Sharper was an acquaintance of one of the women and that the group went out drinking to a club called The Mint and later at another location, American Junkie....
