Darren Sharper charged with 2 counts of sexual assault in Arizona


Add Arizona to the growing list of states where former NFL analyst Darren Sharper has been charged with rape/and or sexual assault. Sharper was charged with 2 counts of sexual assault stemming from allegations he raped two women in Tempe last November.

The Maricopa County Attorney’s Office tells us … Tempe detectives submitted the case to a grand jury, which decided there was enough evidence to charge Sharper with a crime. 

As we previously reported, cops say … two women claim Sharper drugged their drinks and sexually assaulted them at their apartment on November 20th. 

Cops say they recovered the cup Sharper used to serve one of the women … and it tested positive for traces of Ambien … the drug Sharper allegedly used to knock out his victims. 


The alleged assault sounds similar to the case in Los Angeles and the pending allegations in New Orleans. The official charges in Arizona are 2 counts of sexual assault and 3 counts of administering dangerous drugs.
