LOS ANGELES, CA. (FOXNEWS, March 1st, 2014)-  Former NFL safety Darren Sharper turned himself into Los Angeles police late Thursday, after being charged in an arrest warrant in New Orleans alleging he and another man raped two women in the Louisiana city last year.

Sharper, 38, had already been charged with raping and drugging two women in Los Angeles and was freed on bail, the Los Angeles Times reports. He is now accused of raping nine women and drugging 11 in five states, including Florida, Nevada and Arizona. In nearly every incident, authorities claim Sharper plied victim with drinks causing them to black out.

Police say Erik Nunez, 26, was booked early Friday on two counts of aggravated rape, stemming from alleged assaults last September in New Orleans. Nunez was earlier described by authorities as an acquaintance of the six-time All-Pro safety originally from Richmond, Va. Each faces two counts of aggravated rape, Remi Braden, a police department spokeswoman, said in a news release.

The two women were allegedly raped at the same location on Sept. 23, Braden said.

“New information uncovered also indicates that Nunez also allegedly raped both women that night at the same location,” she said.

    Wow there's a surprise. Another NFL player charged with a felony. National Felons League. Another black man not knowing how to behave… Another surprise. I'm surprised he didn't rape her AND kill her.

    how this guy can't locate a willing sex partner is baffling to me. throwing away your reputation and livelihood for pending assault and rape charges is incredible to me. Darren should have been a lot "sharper."
