Darren Sharper has 3rd rape allegation in New Orleans


NFL network analyst Darren Sharper was suspended without pay, following his arrest for two separate rape allegations in Los Angeles. One that allegedly took place in this month and another from October 2013.

Now comes word of a third allegation from September of 2013. This one alleged to have taken place in New Orleans.

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.

“As with every case alleging sexual assault, information gathered is extremely sensitive and the top priority of the detectives is to protect the person who filed the complaint.  Because this is an ongoing criminal investigation, we cannot provide additional information at this time.”

Sharper was a member of the New Orleans Saints during his 14 year NFL career. He retired in 2010.
